SAN DIEGO – A grey whale took a quick detour from it’s southern migration and entered San Diego Bay Monday morning.
The whale was first noticed off Ballast Point in the ocean near the entrance to the bay by reporter Phil Konstantin of Total Traffic Networks. He was airborne for a midday news report around 11 a.m. and saw it near Shelter Island.
By 11:30 a.m., the whale had made its way out of the bay and was heading south. This is the typical migration pattern for whales to head to Mexico from the north for the winter for breeding season.
