1. Whale Watching
For a romantic adventure, hit the high seas to witness the annual migration of the gray whales. Through the months of February and March, approximately 15,000 gray whales swim south from the icy waters of the Arctic to mate and nurse their young in the warm, shallow lagoons along Magdalena Bay in Baja, California. Gray whales move at a steady speed of about five miles per hour, and most can be spotted in an area that extends from the kelp beds (about 3/4 miles from the shoreline) out to the horizon.
Several local companies offer whale-watching excursions:
- Half Moon Bay Sportfishing & Tackle, (650) 728-3377
- Huli Cat Sportfishing, (650) 726-2926
- Riptide Sportfishing, (888) 747-8433

There may be nothing more romantic than paddling through the gorgeous Pillar Point Harbor on a tandem kayak with the one you love. For inquiries, contact Half Moon Bay Kayak, 2 Johnson Pier, (650) 773-6101, or visit their website here.
We hope you enjoy your Valentine’s Day with whomever you choose to spend it with.
