Gray Whale Migration

POPbinocularsThe eastern Pacific grey whales pass by Point Cabrillo twice, on their southward journey from mid-December into February, and again going north between February and mid-May. They do not migrate simultaneously, and not all the whales make it all the way to Baja. Some linger off shore; observations suggest that these are primarily the younger males. Newly pregnant females lead the northward migration, followed by males, and the last to leave Baja are usually females with babies.
