A pretty good local spot for whale watching from land is the southern end of the Grey Whale Cove Trail in McNee Ranch, just above the highway and Montara State Beach. A number of sightings over the past week and a half from there, including three at one time on Feb. 6. Often, the best place to look is just beyond the outer line of breakers from the middle of the beach north to the point. These whales seem to be in no hurry, so once you spot one, you can watch its activity for quite a while. Binoculars are not necessary, but they can make the experience even better.
Carl, thanks for the tip.
We went on a whale watching tour last year and I was surprised just how close to the shore the whales really are. We saw plenty of whales just off Surfers Beach.
