  • This migration data is available on a daily basis directly from the American Cetacean Society of Los Angeles and Gray Whales Count, a joint research and education project of:
    UCSB's Coal Oil Point Reserve, Goleta, CA; American Cetacean Society Channel Islands, CA
    and Cascadia Research Collective in Oympia, WA
  • The data above is compiled and published here for our Gray Whale Migration Updates on the dates shown.
  • A network of whale-watch captains along the migration route also contribute sightings. Their locations are marked as stars on our Gray Whale migration map and labeled as "Observation Posts."
  • Additional gray whale sightings may be contributed by other observers. Go directly to our Gray Whale migration map and to the data archives.
