The first sight of the whale popping out of the Pacific will leave a Strong imprint on your mind. The best season to spot the Whales is winter, when thousands of Whales migrate to warm lagoons of Baja California in Mexico from icy waters of Alaska. Summers are also not a disappointment with Enormous Blue Whales- the largest Known mammal floating around the Californian coast.

The Sea otters in California were profoundly hunted for their smooth, warm pelts, lined with about 1 million hairs per square inch. The otters became almost extinct, only 30 were left on the Big Sur Coast. Nowadays their hunting is forbidden by law and their population has shown significant growth over the recent years thanks to their scientific conservation effort. Fresher studies reveal that more than 3000 Otters live in coastal, kelp forests stretch between moon Bay in San Francisco and Ventura to the north of L.A.
You can spot otters wrapped in their sea beds of kelp edges from a number of the wharfs along the Central Coast, as in Santa Cruz, or in protected inlets, for example, Morro Bay.
It is easier to get acquainted with California’s Sea lions, whose barks you will probably hear much before actually seeing them hauling out on the rocks. Sea lions are often mistaken with harbor seals. You can distinguish Sea lions with earflaps and whiskers because the harbor seals have earholes and relatively much shorter flippers.
San Francisco's Pier 39 was broadly controlled by Sea lions after the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake. Today travelers come in huge numbers to see these ocean lions battling and moving over one another to claim a shadowed spot in the sun on the wharf.
The Golden State's 1100-mile shoreline overflows with tide pools. Whether you plunge into the Pacific or simply wander along the sand, you won't be baffled by the biodiversity of California on offer, from small ocean stars to the greatest creatures on earth.
