Sighting from San Francisco Whale Tours vessel Kitty Kat
On this trip we headed west past Fort Mason, around to the central bay, and then back around Angel Island, stopping near Southampton light. This is where we saw our whale.
We had a gray whale surfacing in the north shipping channel.
A few large ships passed by us as we watched the animal. The sighting was reported to Vessel Traffic and the ships alerted to the presence of the whale.
