Katrina, Be careful, when the whales cruise down the coast they stay near the kelp forests. When they get to monterey bay, they have to make the deadly crossing from Santa Cruz to Monterey, unprotected from the kelp...where the great white is waiting for lunch, albeit, there are more attacks when the calves are heading back north with mom, but it still a dangerous part of the Pacific. Be careful.
