With dreams of catching your limit of Dungeness Crab or landing a fish worthy of newspaper headlines, head to Fort Bragg’s Noyo Harbor and board one of the many sport fishing boats that cruise out to sea in search of dinner! What you catch depends on the time of year and the whims of Mother Nature but you’ll be sure to have a great time baiting crab pots or fishing lines while trawling the waters for dinner. Not into fishing or crabbing? Then be on the lookout for the behemoths of the Pacific Ocean. California Gray Whales ply the waters just offshore from Alaska to Baja California during the months of December through February to bask in the warm waters of Baja California. They then make the return trip north with their new calves during the months of February through April.
