Hearst Castle Tours and Whale Watching

Hearst Castle: Spectacular Ocean Views

On California’s beautiful Central Coast, tourism season never ends—it just slows down. With over 200 wineries where you can enjoy wine tasting, Paso Robles’ quaint downtown of shops and restaurants and the picturesque views of the Pacific Ocean, it’s no wonder that both locals and visitors never run out of things to do.

One of the most popular activities is touring Hearst Castle and The Wine Wrangler can get you there in style. Not only will you be able to relax and enjoy the scenery along the way, but as we drive you up along the coast, you just might enjoy a little whale watching, too.

Winter is the best time to go whale watching in California as Gray whales, Killer whales—even Blue whales—make their way down the coast and into the warmer waters off the coast of Mexico.
Hearst Castle provides the perfect lookout. Perched high on the hills overlooking the Pacific Ocean it’s the perfect spot to catch sight of a whale—or, at least enjoy the vast collection of art and antiques that newspaper mogul Randolph Hearst amassed during his lifetime.

Book a Hearst Castle Tour today and you’ll enjoy a relaxing ride up the Central Coast of California to San Simeon where you’ll take in ocean views and rolling landscapes.
