The whales normally show up the first week in February and stay through most of March. Last year they arrived on February 4th, so maybe ant day now.Hopefully!

Is there a spot to watch without going on one of the boats? I don't do very good on boats but would love to see the whales. We're going to be down there this week.

I've heard of people seeing them from beaches but I think it is very rare.

The whale season normally starts in February and ends about the second week in March. Most of the time the whales hang out between 8-12 miles offshore. Once in a while they do swim close to shore, but it's rare.
