Whale and Tails Everywhere
—Posted Monday, January 9th, 2012 at 2:58 pm—
Yesterday we saw four pods of Gray Whales off our coast. The sea was calm with skies blue and visibility for 50 miles to the King Range Mountains and Lost Coast. Some days, you can see whale spouts everywhere.
Each year, an estimated 20,000 Gray Whale migrate past Fort Bragg from the Bering Sea to the warm lagoons of Mexico to give birth. The migration begins in December and tails off in April as the new mothers and their calves work their way slowly north, hugging the coastline to better protect the babies from killer whales.
When you come for a visit, we’ll help you arrange a whale watching cruise out of Noyo Harbor. Or tell you the best spots to view them from shore.
