Gray Whale Census February 10, 2011

This is the latest census as of Feb. 10 of 2011. Keep in mind that these census take place in the lagoon and ONLY in the designated whale watching area. The census's do not include whales just out of the area near the mouth of the lagoon. If i were to estimate, I'd say we have another 20-30 whales inside the lagoon near the mouth and another 40-50 on the outside of the mouth.

Census: Feb. 15, 2011
Adult Gray Whales:  122
Gray Whale Calves:   55
Total Gray Whales:   177
