Monterey Bay Whale Watch
List of Most Recent Marine Mammal Sightings in the Monterey Bay Region

Since November 1, 2014
compiled by Monterey Bay Whale Watch

Marine Mammals seen in Monterey Bay

This list, updated every few days, includes reported sightings from all boats in Monterey Bay. Sightings marked * were reported by other boats in the Monterey Bay area, including fishing, research, private and whale watch boats, as we keep track of all sightings in the Bay through our sighting network. Unusual sightings of other marine animals such as Leatherback Sea Turtles and Basking Sharks are also listed. California Sea Lions, Harbor Seals and Southern Sea Otters, which are seen on all whale watching trips, are not included in the list. Each month the sightings from the previous month are moved to a monthly summary list.

These sightings are copyright protected and may not be used without permission from Nancy Black. All rights reserved. Unauthorized use of this information is a violation of federal copyright law, and is subject to prosecution to the full extent of the law.
