December through April you can observe part of the amazing 10,000 mile annual migration of the Pacific gray whale from Alaska to Mexico. At 30 to 50 feet in length and weighing up to 40 tons, these whales leave their summer feeding grounds in the Bering Sea and make the trek south to the lagoons of Baja to give birth to their calves. Its possible to see both south and north bound migration all the way through April. Most whale watching tours reported sightings as close as 1/2 mile from our bay!
From June to December the Eastern Pacific blue whales can be found from the Chukchi and Bearing seas in Alaska during the summer to Panama in Central America during the winter. It is known that blue whales migrate south in winter to subtropical waters and then to temperate waters in summer and fall, but the migratory paths are not well known due to the nomadic movements of individuals. As they head north, they travel far offshore, but as they migrate south, they stick closer to the central California coast. Off California, sightings are made seasonally from June to December in the Southern California Bight and from May to November in northern and central California.
Experience the wonder of one of the largest animals to ever live on earth in their natural habitat, it is truly beyond amazing. Blue whales can be spotted in San Diego’s waters in the summer as the coastal waters warm up. Humpback whales, Fin whales and pods of Dolphins are also spotted regularly on our sailing adventures. Come join us to explore Mother Nature in all her glory.
