Default Out Looking for Whales

Winter in southern California is typically the best time of the year to see whales swimming south from the Alaskan waters to the warm waters of Mexico. My wife and I had an afternoon free and went to see if we could see some whales.

We stopped at the Point Vincente Interpretive Center on the Palos Verdes Peninsula. This is where a group of people gather daily to count the whales as they swim by. It's about as good of a place there is to see whales from the shore.

The whale counters.


Binoculars, spotting scopes and cameras with long lenses, this group gets very excited when they spot a whale.


Not to be disappointed. My wife got excited too.


Whales!






The scoreboard for the day.


The End. Thanks for looking.

Thanks Mike

A great set of images ~ we have similar groups of whale watchers down here too - often around the Hervey Bay & Fraser Island region in Queensland, or way way south around Eden in southern New South Wales

Thanks Phil,

We are very fortunate to live here. The middle of winter and were out in short sleeves whale watching.

Thanks for your reply.
