Thank you patty,
Really useful and interesting brochures. Hadn't thought of the parks closing at night, but you e given us loads of other options. I can see us not getting more than a few miles south, there's so much that is so beautiful, and all on an American scale that I struggle to get my head found.
Any recommendations for which block or room at Asilomar would have the most recently refurbished bathroom. It seems that some rooms are worse than others. Any tips on avoiding them other than spending all our time out of the room which we will be doing.
Thanks again for such useful info.

Also do you have any opinions on the different whale watching providers, main difference seems to be length of time and possibly enthusiasm of naturalist. Have read reviews of moss landing one being shorter and therefore possibly better. (I will havr taken my Kwells tablets but a little concerned they might not be strong enough to keep the nausea at bay)

Yes, you should check directly with Asilomar. I haven't stayed there, only toured the property and peeked inside one of the historic rooms and the bathroom did look pretty dated. I don't know if the other categories of rooms are any better.

From Fisherman's Wharf I've used Princess and Monterey Bay Whale Watch. I did think the latter's naturalist was better but that may be the luck of the day. From Moss Landing I've only gone with Sea Goddess. I think all of the whale watch companies do a fairly good job. When the whales are offshore of Moss Landing (and they often are), it can be a shorter boat ride from there so that might be a better option if you're prone to seasickness. The Monterey boats can go in various directions, sometimes Moss Landing, sometimes Carmel Bay or may see whales right out of the harbor. It just depends on the day.

I would try for Whitecaps, Spindrift or Breakers @ Asilomar -- we avoided the historic rooms.

Many thanks
Have been trying to avoid an expensive international call to the US but thanks for the help.

Have managed to convince husband that an extra day in Manterey would be good so we are cutting one day out of San Fran and adding it to our Asilomar stay so we will have time to explore the area for longer. Really looking forward to it.
Thanks for all your help,
