Monterey has a diverse climate with a wide array of wildlife, and Monterey Bay is one of the best places to observe it. Whale watching trips are common in Monterey, and a popular way for locals and travelers to explore the region beyond the coast. For that reason, and because we like taking care of our guests, we have a special whale watching package to incorporate this fun experience with your hotel booking experience.
The nearby Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary is one of the largest protected marine areas in the world, so our hotel is an excellent location for wildlife viewing. If whale watching interests you, stay at The Sanctuary Beach Resort and consider our premiere whale watching hotel package. The deal includes two tickets for whale watching at nearby Fisherman’s Wharf (valued at $80 a piece), and Deluxe accommodations at our oceanfront resort. Learn more about the special and reserve here.
There are a wide variety of Monterey Bay whale watching excursions that you can take in Monterey, including half-day and full day excursions. Among the extensive sea animals you can see on one of these excursions are gray whales, humpback whales, blue whales, orcas, and dolphins. For those of you who are in town now, March is the peak month for northbound Gray Whale migration, so it’s a good time to head out.
Before or after your Monterey whale watching excursion, you can stop off to enjoy a wide variety of attractions and culture at Monterey’s beloved Fisherman’s Wharf. Go shopping at favorite local brick-and-mortars like Carousel Candies, or Morning Star Pearl—the best selection of pearls in Monterey. You can also find dynamite seafood on the wharf at spots like Big fish Grill, Domenico’s on the Wharf, and Old Fisherman’s Grotto.
If whale watching is on your list, and this special makes sense, that’s wonderful. If you’re interested in other unique and conventional hotel specials, The Sanctuary Beach Resort has plenty to offer.
