People Getting Too Close to Gray Whale in Marina Del Rey
Despite rules and pleas for cooperation from local whale experts , many whale watchers in Marina Del Rey have been getting to close to the wayward whale in the channel at the Marina as these photos from Sunday, June 14 illustrate. Federal laws state that it is against the law to approach within 100 yards in the water, however many boaters, kayakers, and paddleboarders have been observed waiting to catch a closer look at the whale. These rules are in place both to protect the whale and the humans from a disastrous encounter with the whale.Anyone interested in seeing the whale can get a great view from the jetty.
