San Diego’s Year Round Whale Watching Schedule
Experience the magic of migrating whales year-round! Whether you’re looking to get up close and personal or witness whales from the shore, there are tons of ways to enjoy these magnificent creatures off the coast of San Diego.
Winter & Spring Gray Whale Watching
Migration Period: Mid-December – April
Each year, 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. After spending time in warm Baja California waters so their young can grow strong, they make the journey north again in spring. The longest known distance any mammal migrates on an annual basis, it is truly an extraordinary spectacle to observe. With 70 miles of coastline directly in the migration path, San Diego is an ideal destination to see this impressive parade of gentle giants. According to the Birch Aquarium in San Diego, gray whales generally travel alone or in pods of two or three but more may be seen traveling together during peak migration season. These giants are roughly the width of a basketball court and cruise at an average speed of five knots (about six miles per hour).
