LA to Seattle = approx 1,200miles. Rate of Grey Whale swim = approx 144km/day (6km/hr). Therefore, non-stop, 24hr per day swimming, direct (no food, no sex, no other): the journey would take approx 7/days. How fast can a kayaker paddle?

Yep, migrating Greys from south just might be there now in Seattle! But are those Greys, the migrating Greys or the permanent resident Greys?
