There is something magical about viewing sea creatures in their native habitat, and maybe one of the best examples is the opportunity to watch gray whales off the California coast. Just as predictable as Pasadena’s Rose Parade, a “parade” of some 20,000 gray whales is ready for viewing each winter in waters easily reached by tour boats. Some may have the impression that these huge mammals only travel in deep waters far from the coastline, but the reality is it’s even possible to see whale spouts from some points on land.

Even though this part of Southern California boasts lots of sun, sand and scenery, the prices for your Oxnard getaway are likely to be a little less than more famous beach communities.

Check any California marina on any given day and you'll invariably see a fleet of yachts and pleasure craft tucked securely in their moorings, canvas draping most of the windows with little sign of life. The owners presumably are toiling in the corporate world somewhere earning the money to pay for boats that just stay tied up at the dock. This situation got Oakland's Rob Harris to thinking - what if some of these boats could be made available to people who can't afford to own and maintain a boat, but have the time to actually use one?
