Not the Only Fish In The Sea

We know, we know—whales and dolphins aren’t fish… Still, if you’re just not getting lucky seeing cetaceans, don’t overlook their smaller, cuter mammalian cousins: seals, sea lions, and sea otters. Sign up for a kayaking trip in Monterey Bay or (the more sheltered) Elkhorn Slough to get up close and personal with your new best friends.
