Thank you so much for all the links and information! Unfortunately it looks like the Palomar Observatory is closed Memorial Weekend when we're there. That looked really cool.

I googled and yes there are a lot of seals there! I think we will plan a drive down and check it out. I know the kids would love to see a beach full of wild seals!

They say gray whale season is over but the blue whales are starting to appear.
We went out in August and saw fin whales, blue whales and lots of dolphins. I enjoyed the 2 hour trip so much that we went again the following week.
There are sea lions just outside of the harbor.
If you have a Tuesday free it's half price trips. We ate at the place at the end of the pier overlooking the water. Food was pretty good. View was great with lots of paddle boards, boats and bird watching.
I have bookmarked this site. Thank you. It does look like the blue whale season would be in effect. There is a cruise that Friday night for only $25 instead of $45 so maybe we'll check that out!
Thank you everyone for your great tips and advice. It has been very, very helpful!
