SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the DP Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.

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.
