Along the drive to Eureka, arrange with your charter bus driver to make a stop at the Humboldt Bay Maritime Museum and explore California’s second-largest bay. The Bay is also the only open-ocean boat launch in California and also a favourite amongst those fishing enthusiast; perch, jacksmelt, California halibut, salmon, leopard sharks, clams, bat rays and crabs are common finds here. The Humboldt Bay National Wildlife Refuge is also home to 250 bird species.
While you are exploring the Bay, remember to visit the Humboldt State Park where you can hike and get close to mother nature.
