There’s more whales in the Monterey Bay this season than we can remember! Come out to Sand Rock Farm and take an ocean adventure with Sanctuary Cruises.
There’s no better time to revel in the beauty of the California Coast – flowers blooming with abandon, clear skies (with an occassional burst of rain just for variety), and a perfect temperature for strolling on the hills and beaches… And none of the bustle of the summer season!
Have the coast “to yourself” and, while you’re here, enjoy these events:
