Every year in early spring, thousands of gray whales migrate up the Pacific coast from their breeding grounds near the Baja Peninsula in Mexico to Alaska. The 10,000 to 14,000 mile migration is the longest of any mammal. Gray whales can grow to 50 feet long and weigh over 40 tons.
We see the same 8 – 12 Grays each year. They break off from the group and enter Puget Sound to feed on shrimp in their favorite shallows. They can be seen in the Puget Sound between Everett and Whidbey island, a short boat ride from our home port in Edmonds.
The Whale Watching season usually lasts until May. The whales then continue their migration to spend their summer in Alaskan waters.
Orcas can also be seen at various times of the year, but are not as predictable as the Grays.
