Now is the ideal time for whale-watching at Wheeler on the Bay. Up to 24,000 gray whales are heading north on their trip from Baja-to-Artic. Jutting out into the ocean at 600 feet elevation, Neahkahnie viewpoint (milepost 41) provides an unsurpassed whale-watching location. Morning is the best time to watch, with relatively calm, and overcast days giving the best viewing conditions. Bring a pair of binoculars and dress warmly in waterproof clothing. Let the whale-watching party begin with your visit to Wheeler on the Bay this weekend.
