Montara Mike (Mike Watson) stopped by Montara Beach today and watched these whales playing in the surf. He was kind enough to share the photos with us.
Every year the gray whales migrate north and pass by our coastline. The females and calves travel very close to the shore, perhaps for protection from sharks and other dangers. They will often linger near Montara for a week or more.
