Killer Whale Attacks Gray Whale (Drone Footage) - Monterey CA
We just got off the water with Discovery Whale Watch, the newest whale watch company in Monterey Bay. We have drone footage of a Gray Whale attack that just ended this afternoon north of Marina CA. Our drone pilot was able to capture some incredible footage of the attack, some of the first footage of its kind. In the video you can see the Gray Whale mom defending her calf by holding it on her back as the Killer Whales attack. This is the fifth attack in 12 days in Monterey Bay and the first escape we have documented this year. The Gray Whale mom and calf did indeed escape this time because the Killer Whales took off at high speed to the west. It is very likely that another attack drew their attention away from the scene. Whale watching has been absolutely incredible this month and we don’t expect it to slow down anytime soon!
