|Baby Gray Whale Near Boat in San Ignacio|
Latecomers are still spotted southbound. Last Thursday we saw a pod of about 4 whales swimming south from our Central California lookout. And then the next day we saw at least 2 whale swimming back north. They were probably juvenile gray whales.
The Pacific west coast is like a whale highway right now. Blue whales are visiting Monterey Bay, along with a few Humpback whales. Off the coast of Los Angeles, a whale watch boat found a pod of Sperm whales! That was a surprise.
