December 20th through April 1st San Diego hosts over 25,000 Grey whales as they embark upon their incredible 10,000 mile journey from the South Arctic Sea to the beautiful Baja California Seacoast? Each and every year, like clockwork, these spectacular mammals arrive in the warm waters of Southern Baja where the females birth their young before returning to the Arctic waters. It’s an amazing sight ~ something you don’t want to miss ~ and will never forget!
Whale Watching with Sail San Diego is something you don’t want to miss!!

ACS/LA GRAY WHALE CENSUS AND BEHAVIOR PROJECT; We finished December with a record-breaking 393 southbound GRAY WHALES, which is higher than the entire southbound count for 15 of the past 31 seasons! Our 8 southbound newborn calves also set a new December record.
It appears the gray whales are migrating a bit earlier than usual from their Arctic feeding grounds to Baja’s lagoons. No one can be certain just how many of the estimated 21,000 Pacific gray whales have already passed southern California but 5 whales were seen yesterday (January 1, 2015). More whales than usual are remaining close to the coast. With high visibility and calm waters sightings are being logged in record numbers. The 2014 Whale Watching season could be among the best in the history of commercial whale watching.
It was a record December for the ACS-LA Gray Whale Census and Behavior Project, whose volunteers have been counting whales from the Point Vicente area on the Palos Verdes Peninsula every day during the migration period from December through mid-May since 1984.
There have even been several groups of six, seven, and eight whales passing through, with many of them showing their flukes. We’re used to seeing one, two, or maybe three,” said Alisa Schulman-Janiger, director of the census and behavior project. “And many have been very close to shore. It has just been whale after whale.” (Excerpts taken from an article on Grind TV by Pete Thomas 12/29/14)
