Best time to see whales in San Diego?

    What whales will I see now in San Diego? Migration Period: Mid-December – April.
More than 20,000 gray whales make a 10,000 mile round-trip journey from Alaska to the lagoons of Baja California, where the females give birth to their calves. They typically spend several months in the warm Baja California waters, time for their young to grow strong enough to make the journey home, before making their way back north again in the Spring. It is the longest known distance any mammal migrates on an annual basis – these giants are roughly the width of a basketball court and cruise at an average speed of five knots (about six miles per hour).

     Personally, I can tell you they are out there in all their glory. When we whale watch, we connect to the water, whales, and the wonder of life on Earth. While observing, we are their guests and we watch from a respectful, yet engaging, distance. We see them with their young, spouting through blowholes, and, often, flipping tails, and maybe even jumping.
     The world is a wonderful place; make sure you take advantage of all it has to offer.
