A Whale of a Time
From December to March, the big news along the San Diego coast is the annual migration of an estimated 20,000 grey whales. Heading south from Alaska to Baja, these magnificent mammals provide one of the greatest shows on Earth. For a front-row seat, sign up for a whale-watching cruise with San Diego Harbor Excursion. Naturalists from the Birch Aquarium at Scripps narrate the three-and-a-half–hour adventure and answer all your questions about the superstars of the sea. You’ll also spy a supporting cast of dolphins and sea lions.
