Whale Watching in Oceanside

Whale Watching in Oceanside

It is that time of the year again! An incredible migration is moving past Oceanside. Each season, beginning in December and running through April, upwards of 20,000 gray whales make a 10,000 mile round-trip journey from Alaska to the warm lagoons of Baja California, where the females give birth to their calves.  It is the longest known distance any mammal migrates on an annual basis and is truly an extraordinary spectacle to see. With our coastline directly in the gray whale migration path, Oceanside is an ideal destination to see this spectacle of gentle giants.
