The day after Thanksgiving, we went down to Long Beach to visit the Aquarium of the Pacific and take a whale watching cruise. We learned a lot of fascinating things at the Aquarium and had a really wonderful time.
After the Aquarium, we headed down to the dock for our boat ride. On our cruise, we saw several sea lions, hundreds of stampeding dolphins, and two humpback whales. It was the most incredible experience. I highly recommend it. (Tip: book through the Aquarium to get a bit of a discount.)
