Whale watchers were in awe a couple days ago as they witnessed the largest ever reported herd of grey whales. They where sited along the Southern California region. One of the cities where you were able to most see the whales was San Diego and was surely a once in a lifetime event.

Local whale-watchers have reported what they believe was the largest pod of gray whales seen in Southern California waters in at least three decades.

The pod of 23 gray whales was spotted Sunday afternoon off the coast of Palos Verdes by whale-watchers stations at Point Vicente, then confirmed by a whale researcher aboard a crowded vessel off San Pedro.

"ONCE IN A LIFETIME ENCOUNTER!" exclaimed local American Cetacean Society board member Alisa Schulman-JanigerĀ on Facebook.
