The annual migration of gray whales along San Diego's coast is one of nature's most incredible spectacles. Not only is the gray whale one of the largest animals on earth, it also has the longest annual migration of any mammal. Each year about 26,000 gray whales undertake a round trip migration of over 10,000 miles from the icy Arctic waters of Alaska to the warm tropical lagoons around the tip of Baja California Sur where the females give birth to their calves.
Gray whales are relatively slow swimmers and surface every three to five minutes to blow a few times before they dive under again. This usually provides ample opportunity to view the whales. Having knowledge of the diving, breathing, and migration patterns of the whales are key components to a successful whale watching cruise in San Diego.
Although it is possible to see gray whales from certain high shoreline vantage points, nothing compares to the experience of viewing gray whales up close aboard a sailing yacht whale watching cruise in San Diego. Whale watching is a memorable, fun, and educational activity for everyone whether young or old.
