We began winter whale watching back in the early 70s out of San Pedro Sportfishing. The chief curator of the Pt Furmin seaquarium would often come with us. His name was John Alquine (sp?). Believe he was a founder of the American Cetacean Society. In any case, your "Each year, between November and etc etc" is almost word for word a portion of John's excellent trip narrations. We were chartered to the LA City School District, running 2 trips a day, with about 130 kids per trip. We would have rather been fishing, but it was wintertime and at least it kept us employed. Plus we also carried many volunteers to help with the kids. Typically, those volunteers were young females from LB State, UCLA and USC. They certainly made those trips more "interesting"Following he whale migration, finding other opportunities'
Whale migration California
Each year, between November and April, California grey whales make their annual migration from feeding grounds in Alaska south to mate and have babies in the warm coastal lagoons of Baja
I once saw a pod of Orcas off of Pt Sal, playing that sea lion volleyball with about 3-4 sea lions. It was definitely like watch cats with mice. Amazing sight.
