According to the Manhattan Beach Patch, two gray whales were recently seen just off the Manhhatan Beach Pier.

The Easy Reader also reported a gray whale within a mile of shore.

And in Rancho Palos Verdes at the Point Vicente Lighthouse and Visiting Center, researches reported the largest pod of gray whales seen in thirty years. (see the NBC San Diego story here with video of the enormous pod!)

And, not to be outdone, a few Orcas got into the action as well!
