Whale You be my Valentine? | Julien  buttonLink

Whale You be my Valentine?

With the presence of so many gray whales this time of year, we are bound to witness some interesting behaviors. As mentioned in the last several blogs, we have been seeing some breaching and rolling behavior which is often time interpreted as courting or playful behavior. In the last couple of weeks, with the influx of so many small groups of whales, playful whales have been spotted frequently.

Octopus Bowl

An octopus investigates a football. The latest Hugh's Aquarium Views video

A video of an octopus playing with a football. It’s seemed only appropriate though coincidental that the Aquarium of the Pacific’s giant Pacific octopus checked out a football the same week that the Rams Football Team announces its return to Los Angeles.

Grays, Grays, Grays!

The grays are still going strong! A bunch of southbound grays have been seen daily, and sometimes, they are not travelling alone. Many of the grays we have been seeing lately are in small groups, which make the sightings quite exciting

First Whales of the New Year | Julien  buttonLink

First Whales of the New Year

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a fun and safe holiday season. We have already started 2016 out strong with lots and lots of whales. The gray whale migration is going strong and at the moment, we have had 338 whales that have been counted travelling south to Mexico past Palos Verdes where the census takes place. Out of these whales, three of them have been counted at calves. I was so fortunate to go out on the 9 AM whale watch tour this past Sunday and there was so much life out there!
