The whales feed in the summer and fall, off the coast of California.

Humpbacks are nicknamed the "ballerinas" of the sea because of their graceful breeches. They also love to flap their fins.

They are often spotted in Monterey Bay from late April through early December. They migrate to Mexico in the winter.
