The Blue Whale is the largest animal in existence. Its massive size can measure up to the equivalent of two 18-wheel trucks. As shown in the above Blue Whale Migratory Map, they exist in many oceans including the Northern Atlantic, Northern Pacific, Indian Ocean and Antarctic Ocean. They consume up to 40 million krill per day, so you can expect to find them in areas where krill are plentiful.
Blue Whales travel between their feeding and breeding areas, which you can see in the above map. The whales will travel leave when the temperatures drop and travel to warmer waters to mate. When they travel, they swim slowly in order to conserve energy.
Mexico’s Baja California is a fantastic place to spot Blue Whales in the wild. Often you can spot them between February and March.
The Saguenay-St. Lawrence Marine Park in Quebec, Canada is another place where Blue Whales frequent.
In the summer months, Reykjavik in Iceland is a common spot for Blue Whales to visit.
