Please join SF Bay ACS chapter and Oceanic Society for a wonderful whale watching trip This 3 to 3-1/2 hour trip will leave from Pillar Point, Half Moon bay.
The trip goes from 9:00-12:00 with the Naturalist meeting the passengers 1/2 hour before the departure. Lynette Koftinow, your event host, will be on the trip.
We will have the delight of observing the gray whale northern migration of mothers/calves and individuals and various other cetacean, sea lion/seals, bird life at this time.
The annual gray whale migration, one of the world's most magnificent and accessible wildlife spectacles, is underway. Each year approximately 15,000 of an estimated total population of 17,500 gray whales swim south from Arctic feeding grounds, en route to their Baja California breeding and calving grounds. From December through May, gray whales can be observed a few miles off California's shore, and whale watchers aboard Oceanic Society's naturalist-led Whale Watch boats have a unique vantage from which to view this incredible "parade."
