The Gray Whales' Southern Sojourn

The majestic gray whales have begun their winter migration down the California coastline! 

January is the peak of their southbound migration from the arctic Alaskan waters to the warm lagoons of Mexico.  Hundreds of these massive creatures will pass by the Bay Area daily and there are plenty of places to spot them.  Don’t miss this amazing wildlife opportunity to view some of the biggest animals to have ever graced our planet; right off our own coastline!

For the best lookout points in Marin, visit Pt. Reyes North Beach, Limatour Beach, Drakes Beach, Muir Beach Overlook and Point Bonita.

If you're in SF, be sure to check out Lands End Lookout, Fort Funston, Mori Point and Devil's Slide.

Enjoy, and don’t forget your binoculars.​​​​​​​
