If you want to view whales without getting on a boat, then the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco may be the way to go. Several humpback whales were spotting enjoying the water under the bridge in one of California’s most iconic bays. There were at least three whales spotted under the picturesque bridge.
Mila Zinkova, San Francisco resident, spotted the whales two out of three consecutive days. So this is definitely a popular spot for these particular whales. Zinkova also managed to get some amazing video of the whales, which you can see below!
Another bridge-goer Tyler Wong tweeted this on Sunday, “If you’re in the area, WHALES ARE UNDER GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE. I REPEAT WHALES UNDER GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE.”
Quite the helpful PSA, if you happened to be on or near the bridge.
So if you happen to be heading to the Golden Gate any time soon, definitely look out below for this magnificent humpback whales. But these whales will probably not be here for too long.
The whales are in the middle of their annual migration patterns and are heading north towards Alaska. Their life cycle includes swimming south towards Mexico in the winter and spring into order to mate and have calves in warmer water; they then head back north in order to eat the richer foods found in the colder northern waters.
