Join us on a boat as we observe part of the longest migration of any mammal on earth! Reaching up to 14 meters in length and weighing up to 40 tons, Gray Whales depart from their summer feeding grounds in Alaska and migrate south along the west coast to the isolated lagoons of Baja California, Mexico, to mate and give birth. Because they hug the coast during their migration, we can spot these gentle giants within only a few miles from the coast!

Please note that the temperature in open water will be 20°F to 30°F below the temperature on shore and that boats can kick up a fine spray of water even if it isn’t raining. Dress in layers and bring a hooded, waterproof jacket. Bring mittens, gloves, or a pair of heavy, warm socks for your hands. In spite of the warm clothes, keep in mind that 60% of the sunlight will reflect back off of the water. Wear sunglasses and a sun visor or a hat with a brim or bill to shade your eyes, and don’t forget the sunscreen. (Be certain that your hat will remain on your head if the wind should pick up!)
