Jan 22, 2018 - National Geographic Sea Bird
Guests disembarked from the National Geographic Sea Bird today for gray whale tours with looks of excitement and returned to the ship with a glow of happiness. On the second week of our expedition, we were thrilled with a day full of gray whale mother and calf pairs. Gray whales make a 5,000 mile journey to Baja California’s coastal lagoons to give birth and breed during the winter months each year. Once a mother has given birth, she and the calf will remain within the protected waters of the lagoon for three months, giving the calf the opportunity to grow and gain strength before the pair begin the same 5,000 mile journey back to the Alaskan waters gray whales call their “summer home.
