Many people come to Southern California to whale watch during the summer. However, the best times to see some of the more unusual whales is during the fall. As whales migrate south for the winter, the waters off of L.A. are filled with these magnificent creatures. You can take a whale watching trip for a half or full day. Many of the whale watching tours will offer lower prices during the weekdays. This is one of the most breathtaking family-friendly events in L.A. that you can experience.
