A baby gray whale visited Mission Bay, OB, and the San Diego River yesterday. A paddle boarder caught the image to the right on his phone.
Channel 10News reported, that “as of 5 p.m., the whale was seen swimming in the water between south Mission Beach and Ocean Beach, possibly on its way out to the ocean. Whale experts and San Diego lifeguards identified the nearly 20-foot whale as a juvenile, or yearling.”
Here also is 8 News report.
There have been no additional reports from today, so apparently the baby swam back out to sea to join the rest of the pod.
