The best times to see California gray whales during their annual migration are late December through the end of January and late March through April. In the winter months, female whales head south to calve in warmer waters. In the spring, you can see them migrating back up north with their calves.
Tule Elk Preserve
Point Reyes National Seashore is the only National Park where tule elk can be found. The Point Reyes herd is one of the largest in California. Rutting season in August – October, and calves can be spotted in the spring.
Breeding Elephant Seals
Elephant seals return to their terrestrial breeding grounds from December through March. Females give birth to a single pup. You can find boisterous males on Drakes Beach and mothers sleeping with their pups in the sunny protected coves along Chimney Rock.
