Whale watching in early November?


My husband and I are taking a trip to California this November. We are trying to decide between whale watching in San Diego (we would be there around November 1st) Or Monterey Bay (around November 7th). I thought that grey whales migrated from mid-December to March, so I'm not sure if we will actually see anything. When I looked up information on Monterey, it said that humpback and killer whales can be seen in November. I also would love to see dolphins and sea lions, but I've always been interested in whales.

There are whales in the Monterey Bay right now. I think some of the whale watching companies post info about their sightings on their websites.
