Grey whales

Mon­terey Bay, Cal­i­for­nia

BBC Wildlife Magazine - - December -

Mon­terey Bay is a great place to spot whales all year round, but a win­ter high­light is see­ing grey whales as they make their way from the Ber­ing Sea to sum­mer breed­ing grounds in Baja, Cal­i­for­nia, fol­low­ing this stretch of the Cal­i­for­nian coast, from mid-Novem­ber or early De­cem­ber. Peak ob­ser­va­tions oc­cur be­tween Jan­uary and March with the cetaceans mak­ing the re­turn trip with calves in spring. A whale-watch­ing trip is the best way to spot them and will also give you the chance to see por­poises, dol­phins, seals, sealions, sea ot­ters and or­cas.
