    Our helicopter looked and looked, and then finally found two gray whales inside the Golden Gate area.

    If you were taking in the sights of San Francisco Bay over the weekend, you may have spotted a gray whale, or at least, the fountain it spewed from its blow hole.

    The latest whale was seen Sunday, though officials from the Gulf of the Farallones National Marine Sanctuary are not releasing the precise location, with the hope of keeping curious eyes at bay, according to the San Francisco Examiner.

    National Marine Sanctuary officials are asking boaters not to get within 300 feet of a whale or cross its path. They say collisions can be disastrous and result in legal action. 

    Several gray whales have been spotted in the Bay in the past month. More whale activity is expected as gray whales migrate this time of year from near Mexico to their Alaskan feeding grounds.
