Gayle Anderson was live in off the coast of Palos Verdes aboard the Harbor Breeze Cruise LA ESPADA, a specialized high speed whale watching catamaran, to see the Gray Whale migration. During the whale watching, Fin, Sperm, Orca, and Humpback whales have been spotted as well as Dolphins.
In addition to witnessing marine life, experts will delve into conservation issues affecting whales in our urban waters and teach us more about the diversity of whale populations and other marine life found off the coast of Southern California.
We can supplement our ocean education at the Aquarium of the Pacific’s award-winning “Whales: Voices in the Sea” multimedia exhibit, where we can explore exhibits about the environmental threats facing Gray, Blue, North Atlantic Right, Humpback, Sperm, and other whales. The exhibit is made possible by the Pacific Life Foundation and was developed by the Scripps Institution of Oceanography with the Aquarium of the Pacific.
