Today my husband and I had the opportunity to cruise out into the Santa Monica Bay to do some whale watching. We traveled on a Travelzoo deal with Marina Del Rey Sportfishing. The boat was great and the crew was terrific. Plus, there were two whale educators on board to fill us in on various whale facts. I am always a fan of seeing wildlife in it’s natural habitat rather than in captivity. We saw quite a few fin whales, the second largest animal after the blue whale, but all at a distance. As usual, the dolphins stole the show.
