Each year the Gray Whale embarks on a 10,000+ mile journey from Costa Baja to the Bering and Chukchi Seas. This is the longest migration of any mammal on earth. The Gray Whales migrate down to the warm protected lagoons off the coast of Baja in the fall where they birth their calves, and then they begin their return to the pure cooler waters of the Bering and Chukchi Seas starting in late February arriving in Alaska in the spring.

The Gray Whale Watching Cruise departs daily through mid March and early May.
