There has been no shortage of gray whale sightings off the coast and what better place to see these majestic sea creatures and their calves then from the luxury of your guest room window seat at the Spindrift Inn or balcony at the Monterey Bay Inn. Known as one of the best areas for whale watching in the world, Monterey is sanctuary to gray whales during their yearly migration from Canada and Alaska. Throughout the year guests can get close up to 15 species of whales and 10 species of dolphins just off the coast. Established in 1992, the Monterey Bay is the largest national marine sanctuary in the continental United States.
