Grey whales migrate 5000 to 7000 miles each direction. The eastern Pacific stock begins migrating north from late February to May, staying close to the coast from California to Alaska. Many spend the summer feeding in the northern Bering and Chukchi seas. Gray whales are the first to arrive, typically in April when they’re often spotted off of Seward. By May, we start to see more orcas, then humpback whales come June. Alaska’s peak whale season is considered to be May through September, and it’s during this time that the boat tours operate.
