Gray Whale Watching - Winter Migration

Real Estate Agent with Inactive

The annual migration is underway. Trained volunteers will be on duty at Port Orford's Battle Rock Park from 10:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. from Dec 26 through Dec 31 to help visitors see these magnificent whales and provide information about their migration. There have been many more sitings this years than in the years recently past and it is just as exciting as ever.

I love whale watching... the season is January through March here in Southern California although the past couple of years the population has grown and there are now tours year round. Can't wait to go!

If you go to see these great creatures, maybe you could take some pictures and post them. I think this would be a wonderful thing to see. I did see Orcas in Alaska several years ago. We had one breach right next to the boat. It was amazing.

I enjoy whale watching.  Usually there is a large billboard sign off the 101FW, which is a good reminder for me to make my reservations.  

I always catch the tour from Ventura, California.  If I remember correctly, the company is called the Island Packers.  As soon as I get on the boat, I order a hot ginger tea, which settles my stomach.  Then I find a good place to sit outside on the deck.  We always see dolphins and seals.  Once we get to a certain area in the ocean, the boat stops, turn off the engines and we wait.  It's a magnificent sight to see them and their offspring in the waters.  Thank you George for posting.

I've been whale watching once on a trip to Catalina Island, and it was an amazing experience. For those in the area, invest some time and witness this first hand.

They are magnificent to see in person and it is a joy to watch them at play. They frequently come into the cove at Battle Rock Park to feed and play for a while before continuing their journey to the warm waters of Baja where the give birth to their calves.

Weather permitting I will get some new photos to post. Thank you for commenting and a Happy New Year to all.
