1. Walk on the Beach

This romantic activity is a classic and no beach getaway would be complete without it. This one is also great to add in at any time, but bonus points if you add in some spontaneity and an extra romantic boost by grabbing your partner before you’ve even unpacked your bags and take them down to the beach for a romantic walk along the waves. Noticing how your toes feel in the sand and how your hand feels in theirs at the same time is bound to get those romantic vibes going.

2. Whale/Dolphin Watching Cruise

First of all, an ocean cruise on a new 50-foot catamaran, by itself is beyond romantic. But imagine as you’re sailing along, splashing through the waves of the ocean you see hundreds of dolphins swimming alongside you. Something about this natural phenomenon feels completely surreal and unearthly and puts you in another world.

Did you know, it’s typical for Gray whales to travel south to warmer Mexican waters during the winter where they will have their babies? They also start heading back to Alaskan waters in February, so if you go whale watching this month, you may catch whales going in both directions!
