Our whale watching pickup location is *not* where the other whale watching boats dock (near the Moss Landing Harbor Office), and it is not in Monterey -- Moss Landing is a tiny town on Route 1 twelve miles (a 25-minute drive) north of Monterey and halfway to Santa Cruz. Look for the boat at the Moss Landing Public Boat Launch Ramp, directly off Highway 1, just north of the huge power plant smokestacks. Enter the large parking lot between the Sea Harvest Restaurant and Monterey Bay Kayaks, behind the Pot Stop garden shop. Look toward the sand dunes and you'll see three parallel floating docks and two boat ramps. Be sure to pay for parking, visit the public rest rooms up near the kayak shop, and get all your layers on, to be ready to board 15 minutes prior to our start time. GPS location is 420 California 1, Moss Landing, CA 95039 (does not work in all units). See you there!
