Gray Whale Migration is on! And Humpback whales!

admin No Comments

Been extremely busy with whale watching trips filling up, gray whale migration in full swing, and resident humpback whales put on spectacular showings. Whale watching out of Newport Beach does not get much better than it is right now! We are seeing double digits of northbound gray whales migrating through every day, 3 or 4 humpback whales performing, superpods of common dolphins, and gorgeous pacific white-sided dolphins. Now is the time to come out Whale Watching!

Gray whales and Humpback whales!

Our gray whale migration is in full swing and we are seeing many each day as the migration has shifted to primarily all northbound whales returning from their breeding grounds. Humpback whales have shown quite a bit this week with some epic encounters a few miles off of the beach. Phenomenal pods of common dolphins, bottlenose dolphins, and pacific white-sided dolphins are rounding out the whale watching action on our trips aboard East Meets West Excursions, Newport Beach.

It has been an exciting week filled with many breathtaking encounters aboard East Meets West Excursions, Newport Beach. We are in the height of our gray whale migration. We saw over 25 gray whales just last weekend alone. More and more northbound whales as well as many late southbound whales are making their journeys up and down our coast. We have also been seeing the occasional fin whale and humpback whale. And many kinds of dolphins: commons, bottlenose, and pacific white-sided. And of course our local sea lions!

Numerous Gray Whales – N and S bound!

It has been a great week with many sightings aboard East Meets West Excursions, Newport Beach. The gray whale migration continues as we head into March and are seeing a nice mixture of both late southbound gray whales and northbound gray whales. Numerous whale sightings every day and almost every trip. Filling in the action has been a trio of dolphins including commons, pacific white-sided, and bottlenose. As well as our usual sea lion crew and even a harbor seal. Now is the time to get in on our gray whale migration. Should be a great couple of months ahead of us!
