The spring months of March, April, and May are the best times to see these mighty creatures of the deep. That’s when thousands of migrating grey whales and their calves swim north from Baja California to Alaska, stopping to rest in Trinidad Bay. Reserve your Spring getaway at Emerald Forest Cabins & RV to see whales as they make their annual journey to colder Northern waters.
Whale Watching by Kayak in Trinidad Bay
Call (707) 329-0085
Whale watching by kayak is probably the most up-close and personal experience you can possibly have with an animal that weighs 60,000 pounds and is as big as a bus. Jason Self of Kayak Trinidad cautions paddlers to stay 100 yards away from marine mammals, including whales and harbor seals. But, sometimes whales will swim right up to you. Don’t move! You came to see whales, so take a picture of the most amazing sight you will ever encounter.
Kayak Trinidad offers kayak rental and expert instruction. When you take the Whales & Wildlife Tour, you’re likely to spot sea & shore birds, porpoises, seals, sea lions, otters, sea stars, anemones, and urchins while silently gliding past the rock gardens, towering sea stacks, and kelp forests of the Redwood Coast.

- Kayak with bulkheads and perimeter lines fore & aft
- Dry suit or wet suit with paddle jacket
- Personal Flotation Device with whistle
The tours at Kayak Trinidad take about 3 hours. Guests are encouraged to bring the following in the quest to see whales…
