The annual gray whale migration, one of the world’s most magnificent and accessible wildlife spectacles, is underway. Each year approximately 15,000 of an estimated total population of 17,500 gray whales swim south from Arctic feeding grounds, en route to their Baja California breeding and calving grounds.
From December through May, gray whales can be observed a few miles off California’s shore, and whale watchers aboard Oceanic Society’s naturalist-led Whale Watch boats have a unique vantage from which to view this incredible “parade.”
Humpback and Blue whales migrate to the Gulf of the Farallones from May through November.
Gray Whales migrate along the California coast from December – April.
