News from Observation Post #9
Monterey Bay , California, United States

Sightings courtesy of Nancy Black and naturalists from Monterey Bay Whale Watch Center. You can check their official sightings log for total numbers of whales (but whether they're traveling north or south is not stated). Jeannie from Monterey Bay Whale Watch Center will report "firsts" and highlights from the whale's journey north as the whale watch captains see them.

April 7: First mother/baby sighting!

Feb. 12: The first northbound sighting at Monterey Bay! Whale watch boat captains have been seeing other northbound grays since that date, despite poor weather.
