Map of Marine Mammal Sightings in the Monterey Bay Region

October 26 - November 30, 1998
compiled by Richard Ternullo


Marine Mammal Sightings Map (21K)

Note: Numerous California Sea Lions, Harbor Seals, and Southern Sea Otters are seen on all trips, and are not plotted on the chart.

Late season abundance of krill has led to numerous observations of Blue, Humpback, and Fin Whales for this time of year. Gray Whales will become the most numerous large cetacean by mid-December. They may be best seen from whalewatching boats or from points along the coast from Pt. Lobos to Hurricane Pt.

Dolphin sightings should remain common as we enter winter with Long-beaked Common Dolphin probably the most frequently seen.
