San Diego is set to celebrate the incredible phenomenon of the annual California Gray Whale migration as thousands of whales travel along our coastline. The 5th annual Big Bay Whale Festival will spark the interest and imagination of all ages on Saturday, January 26, 2013 from 11:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. at the Port Pavilion on the Broadway Pier in downtown San Diego.
Whale watching has become one of San Diego’s favorite pastimes by boasting an impressive variety of sea life that’s just a short boat ride from downtown San Diego. During the 2012 season, local whale watching companies spotted an impressive variety of sea life including seven different species of whales, including the California Gray Whale, and four species of dolphins. For those interested in learning about whale ecology and conversation, the annual Big Bay Whale Festival provides resources and information about opportunities to see and interact with the many whale and dolphin species found along our coast.
A free community event, the Big Bay Whale Festival will feature over 50 vendors providing giveaways, food and entertainment plus fun activities for the kids including a walk-through whale, a mini-train that the family can ride aboard, a bounce/obstacle course, and a sea life coloring mural.
