At a Glance

Gray, Humpback and Blue Whales are having a comeback congregating seasonally along the eastern Pacific coastal waters to feed, breed, calve and migrate. Hear first-hand whale tales gleaned from years on the water operating a whale watch vessel in the Monterey Bay, California. You’ll gain insight about extreme adaptations, including migrations and cooperative feeding aggregations that our fellow mammals have evolved to thrive in their ocean realm.
