11/20/17 1 Gray Whale N/A On one of our Harbor Tour Cruises Monday, we spotted the same juvenile Gray Whale as yesterday under the Coronado Bay Bridge. The whale spouted and then breached then spyhopped to have a look around. It breached a couple more times giving us a great look at the youngster’s darker gray coloration and then headed farther into the bay. The San Diego Harbor Police are remaining with the whale to prevent boats from getting to close to the whale while it is in the bay.
