Whales in the Delta

On May 13, 2007, a pair of humpback whales – a mother and calf – were spotted off the banks of Rio Vista. The two sea mammals traveled nearly 90 miles upstream from the Golden Gate Bridge and into the dead end of the turning basin in the Port of Sacramento. A fleet of rescue boats, tried everything from playing recorded whale sounds to spraying the river with fire hoses, to herd the whales back to the ocean. But the whales managed to find their way back to the San Francisco Bay late Tuesday, May 29. Read stories about a similar whale visit two decades ago

All markers on this map are approximate locations and are meant to show the whales' general direction of travel.
