There are whales in the Pacific Ocean every day. We are overjoyed at the sights and sounds of the Humpback, Orca, and Blue Whale all year long. However, as a special treat between the months of January and May, we have the opportunity to observe firsthand the annual migration in both directions of the California Gray Whale, to give birth in the warmer waters of Mexico.

Last year, a little more than 23,000 California Gray Whales made their journey from Alaska to Mexico and back. Big Sur Guides & Hiking is delighted to offer whale watching hiking excursions during this period, where we will focus on this amazing whale and its journey. We will lead you to specific viewing areas in hopes of visually capturing these whales on this wondrous voyage!
