Gray whale spotted in Mission Bay channel

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - It appears a wayward gray whale that was spotted in the Mission Bay channel Monday has made its way back out to sea Tuesday.

The calf was first sighted near the Ocean Beach jetty, before making its way up the channel.

Matthew Arsoni was paddle boarding in the water, and recorded his up-close encounter on his i-phone.

Doctor John Hildebrand of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography says the whale was likely part of a pod heading down to Baja.
