Whale Watch­ing

Where San Francisco - - Where Calendar -

As our an­nual hol­i­day tra­di­tions wrap up, gray whales are just be­gin­ning their own tra­di­tion: the mi­gra­tion. This month, th­ese ocean gi­ants com­mute south from the icy wa­ters of the Arc­tic to re­pro­duce in the warm la­goons of Baja Cal­i­for­nia. With count­less ac­ces­si­ble van­tage points, from shore­line to hills, Sonoma is one of the best spots to catch the ac­tion. You might see a whale’s ma­jes­tic breach or its pow­er­ful tail slap, and it’s not un­com­mon to find cu­ri­ous whales star­ing right back at you. Grab your binoc­u­lars and read on for a look at some of the best spots to get up­close and per­sonal with the grays. —Zachary Clark
