Dozens of grey whales have been seen in the coastal waters surrounding Dana Point as they travel southbound to the warmer waters of Mexico from their summer stay in the Artic.
A number of sources including Dana Wharf Sport Fishing and Whale Watching and Captain Dave’s Dolphin and Whale Watching Safari have reported an increased number of sightings over the last week. January is widely considered the beginning of the height of migration season in South Orange County, and these numbers are relatively assured to continue for some time.
