Whale Watching Tours

Channel Islands Whale Watching tours begin each year in December to coincide with the annual Gray Whale migration. In late fall, these whales start migrating from the Arctic and make their way down to Mexico to give birth. Then in late winter and early spring, the gray whales and their calves migrate back up to their feeding grounds in the Arctic. They pass right past us during both trips.
