Gray whale makes a visit to Mission Bay

“I saw the tail, saw when it arched up and you could see all the little ripples on its back,” Abel Garcia said. “It was fascinating.” 

Around 10 a.m. yesterday August 13, Mission Bay residents and visitors alike  got to catch a glimpse of a rare spectacle: a baby gray whale.

Apparently, the gray whale went off course during its migration to Alaska and ended up in the San Diego area. At around eight to ten feet long, the juvenile whale came close to the shore and sailboats anchored in the bay until lifeguards guided it back to the ocean. The whale was last spotted in the ocean off of South Mission Beach. What a sight!

With so much to do and so much to see in the San Diego area, why not stay a few nights at one of our gorgeous beachside townhouses? We’ve got beautiful beaches, laid-back night life, and attractions for the family. Maybe something awesome like a gray whale spotting will even happen while you’re here, you never know!
