Let's hug the whale!
Every year, gray whales travel south along the coast of North America towards the Gulf of California, where they mate and give birth. This spectacle attracts whale lovers from all over the world to Mexico. Gray whales are one of the friendliest whales, they will come close to boats, lay their heads on the side, and allow people to touch, hug, scratch and kiss them! We don't usually touch wild animals, but these giants seem to enjoy the attention from people and spend a lot of time near boats.
