Elsa, what time of year would you recommend?
Anthony - that would depend somewhat on what you want to photograph.
what is your preference? Flower season on the West Coast is just about over. We are going into summer - so lots of birds now. We should also have good weather this time of year, through to April at least (but no guarantees of course)
Winter is preferable for shark breaching - although you get sharks all year round - just not as many breaching.
