From feb 8 thru feb 14 my wife and I will be in san diego. Really looking forward to whale watch feb11 with www.sdkc.com But suppose I wanted to paddle solo out to see whales a coupledays before the trip? Do I need neoprene wetsuit? Might I get in trouble paddling near a whale? Have rented 17ft prihon kodiak. Is there a site to read about such things?
