Map of Marine Mammal Sightings in the Monterey Bay Region

Marine Mammal Sightings Map (20K)

Note: Gray Whales are not plotted on the chart. Numerous California Sea Lions, Harbor Seals, and Southern Sea Otters are seen on all trips, and also are not plotted.

Gray Whales continue to be the most frequently sighted large cetacean in our area and will continue to be so as the peak of the northbound migration is reached in mid-March. The first northbounder was observed on February 10. Mothers and calves will be seen mostly from shore as they make their way north. Killer Whale predation interactions with these pairs may be observed until mid-May. Any suspected such events should be reported to 831-375-4658.
