The annual migration of around 25,000 Gray Whales passes along San Diego’s coastline between Baja and the Arctic Sea at distances of only around six miles off the coastline between December and March. Gray Whales are quite stately swimmers and travelling in pods of up to a dozen you can expect to see them surfacing rhythmically as they pass which is quite a graceful sight. This population in the North Pacific are the only surviving group of Grey Whales who have the longest migration of any whale species. There are several points along the coast known to be good for viewing the procession or charter boat or tour options.
