Sightings Report: April 9, 2019

Sightings from San Francisco Whale Tours vessel Kitty Kat


On our first trip of the day we spotted the gray whale near Southampton light.

The whale was spouting every ten minutes and kept its distance from us.



On this this trip we found a gray whale close to Angel Island near the shipping lane. Bill Keener from Golden Gate Cetacean Research was on vessel Oscar Tango observing the gray whale.


The whale swam close to shore and seemed to be swimming against the current, moving towards Raccoon Strait.


On this trip we had a hard time locating a whale.


Near the end of the trip we were floating on the east side of Angel Island, searching for whales, when a gray whale popped up 50 yards off our bow and gave us a good look.
