The Birds & the Bees...and 2 Whales

A boatload of Dana Point whale watchers were treated to the mating ritual of two young gray whales Sunday.

Queue the Marvin Gaye.

While you were watching the Super Bowl, whale watchers in Dana Point were watching a young pair of gray whales mate.

The mating ritual lasted for several minutes, and the frisky pair even showed off some moves the veteran guides on Captain Dave's Dolphin & Whale Watching Safari had never seen before.

According to Dave Anderson of DolphinSafari.com:

On Sunday February 3rd, in front of amazed whale watchers aboard Captain Dave's Dolphin & Whale Watching Safari two gray whales paused their southbound migration for what appeared to be courtship behavior as bottlenose dolphins interacted with these giant pre-Valentine leviathans off of Dana Point, California.

Gray whales are making their annual migration from the cold waters off Alaska to the warm waters off of Baja, CA. There, in the lagoons, they mate and have their calves. It appears these two lovebirds just couldn't wait for Baja though!
