What a day in Magdalena Bay! We spent both the morning and afternoon exploring the lagoon searching for opportunities to get close to the very friendly and curious gray whale. The gray whale, Eschrichtius robustus, utilizes these protected and warm waters as breeding and calving grounds. Their main predator, the killer whale, does not enter these lagoons and the calves are able to gain weight and muscle mass in preparation for the long journey north to feeding grounds in the Bering and Chukchi Seas.
