up close animal adventures

we'll take you to amazing memories!


The Gray Whale Advocate

On line since 1995. Within the pages of this website you will find everything you could want to know about Gray whales and about whale watching. Want to Pet a Whale? We will show you how. Dedicated to promoting knowledge of the Gray Whale species and the environment in which these whales live. This website contains many pages of information and opportunities to join us on an up close animal adventure.

As the web address shows, it all started with whale watching. Simply because, whale watching brings people and whales together and promotes awareness of the dangers that the different whale species face today. In this website you will find truthful, factual information, not biased by greed or by personal interests other than a deep love and respect for the Gray whales. Here you will also find whale watching trips and whale information about Gray Whales, Blue Whales, Humpbacks, Narwhals and more.

My career started out in construction, my heart was always searching for adventure.
My name is Keith Jones, and after years of taking my family on trips to see nature and going alone, I decided that my passion for these amazing animals was more than a hobby.  I wanted every reason I could think of to be back out there with the whales.  If I could take other people with me, I got to be there, and they had an amazing time.  A once a year trip quickly became the winter season in Baja, Mexico.  I couldn't imagine anything better.  Well, until I visited Pandas in China and Tigers in Thailand and swam with whale sharks in the gulf of California and gulf of Mexico and in the Philippines. I had discovered there was an amazing world of up close animal adventures.  Before I knew it, I had a trip for every season and was able to share my passion with others.  Life doesn't get better than this!

  • “...I just wanted to say a big thank you for such an amazing few days. The whale watching was something else and the camp was great. For such a short period of time to get it up and running I thought everyone had done an excellnet job. If watching the whales from outside our tent was not enough already the sunrise and sunset made it just that little bit more special. The boat trips to view the whales were fantastic and we had several encounters with both Mama and baby whale.

    -Diane & Dave Watt
