It’s hard to understand how big the waves are and how hard they hit the rocks and explode everywhere. Those rocks really take a pounding. This video shows several chasms and the waves rushing into them. In the picture above, this video was taken in the area indicated by the green line.
We were 800 feet above the ocean, standing in an old stone cabin built by the CCC in the 1930s, but I was surprised by how small the whales looked. These are enormous animals–the mama was probably about 45 feet long!
They’re huge, they’re smelly, and they sound like a creature from a Star Wars movie. In this video, watch the group playing in the ocean, and toward the end, several suddenly scramble off the rock and into the ocean. The whole clip is about 2½ minutes. Enjoy!
