Recently Monterey Bay has seen one waters in its beaches. These warm waters continue to draw fish closer to the shore bringing hungry whales as well as dolphins birds and the most dangerous of them all… sharks!
The water along the one Terry bay was recorded to be 69°F in August and July 2015 and normal temperatures range from 50°F to the lower 60°F.
Local animals in the sea have been diving in and around the swimming areas. These animals are amazing to see and are eye-candy.
As a result of these animals arriving to the shores, this has brought along spectators that would not normally be at the bay.
Spectators still around in crowds of hundreds all of them in all of the sites that present themselves before them. Just like it would be at SeaWorld.
While all this is amazing to watch just recently, days ago a 50 ton humpback whale launched itself from the water and landed on the nose of a kayak which was carrying people who were watching the whale.
The kayak actually capsized and the people luckily escaped unharmed there is a video showing this event which begs the question how close should you be when near animals such as these?
Here is the amazing footage caught on video!
There is no law that dictates the exact distance one should be, however, you should be using your common sense when faced with a situation such as this.
By all means watch and absorb the beauty of nature. But nature can be very deadly so it is always advised to stay at a safe distance while watching.
All this attention has bought Monterey Bay into the spotlight of the news which is great for the local tourism and I hope that I will be continues to attract tourists from all over the world.
