Cabrillo Aquarium giving whale-watching tours

Pacific Gray Whales, the state marine mammal, will be migrating along California’s coast from January to the end of March. This is an opportunity to view these majestic creatures with Cabrillo Whalewatch Program’s naturalists by your side. More than 120 trained naturalists will take to the seas aboard whale-watching boats from Spirit Cruises and 22nd Street Landing in San Pedro and Redondo Beach Sportfishing in Redondo Beach.
Cabrillo Whalewatch Program is co-sponsored by the Cabrillo Marine Aquarium and the LA Chapter of the American Cetacean Society.
Whalewatch naturalists will share the latest facts and interesting information about Pacific Gray Whales and a variety of other marine life spotted off the Southern California coast. The whales migrate annually from the nutrient-rich waters of the Arctic Seas where they spend the summer feeding, to the warm lagoons of Baja, California, where they mate and give birth. The new calves can often be seen swimming with their mothers as they return north during the second half of the whale watching season. This impressive round-trip migration is 10,000 to 14,000 miles.
Cabrillo Marine Aquarium is located at 3720 Stephen M. White Drive, San Pedro, and is a facility of the City of Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks. For information about whale watching and scheduled departure times, contact Nancee Kioudjian, whalewatch coordinator, at (310) 548-8397 or email CabrilloWhaleWatch@gmail.com.
