Map of Marine Mammal Sightings in the Monterey Bay Region

January 1 - January 31, 2001
compiled by Richard Ternullo


Marine Mammal Sightings Map (20K)

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

Blue Whales have made a late season appearance and provided exciting sightings for everyone. The explanation of their presence is somewhat of a mystery, but old records indicate their presence into December. Gray Whales will continue to be the most often seen baleen whale until April.

Small toothed whales should be seen often and in great numbers through the winter.
