Wildlife adventurer Nigel Marven is traveling 6000 miles, following grey whales as they undertake the longest mammal migration on Earth, up the Pacific coast of North America. From the warm winter birthing lagoons of Baja California, Mexico, a grey whale mother and her newborn calf must travel northwards to the icy seas of the Alaskan Arctic. It’s a long, dangerous journey, past some of the world’s most breathtaking scenery. On land, he finds snakes, bears, eagles and antelope, while out on the ocean waves he comes across a supporting cast of boisterous dolphins, playful sea lions, huge humpbacks and deadly killer whales.
