Lost Whales

We have some humpbacks and grey whales that swim into the bay on occasion. Right now we have two whales that have swam 50 miles up the Sacramento River with the locals trying to lure them back to the ocean. However, the most famous whale came into the bay in 1985 and swam into the hearts of thousands of people as he strugggled to get back to the sea. Watch this vintage video of his adventure and how the folks of the bay area pulled together to save Humphrey the Wayward Humpback Whale.
