More Encounters with the Gray Whales of Magdalena Bay
We were camped at Magdalena Bay for four nights and made four boat trips to see the whales. Most of our whale
viewing was near an opening to the Pacific Ocean.
The whales usually did not stay up for very long. However, they were numerous popping up everywhere around us.

The breeding behavior is complex and often involves three or more animals.  The X-Rated part of this photo is obscured
by the water. There was a lot of mating activity going on.
