Looking for whales? Visit from January through March, when you’ll also find lower temperatures in the delightful mid-70s F. Nights can be cooler during these months, dropping into the 60s.
The hottest temperatures occur from June through October, reaching the mid-90s. Fewer cruise ships arrive during the summer months of July through September, which may be a factor if you are considering a cruise vacation, or looking to avoid those who are.
