LONG BEACH (FOX 11) - For the second time in two weeks a sperm whale was spotted off the Long Beach coast, an "unusual" sighting, according to experts at Aquarium of the Pacific in what they are calling an active whale watching season.

Sperm whales, orca, humpback, and gray whales are among the cetaceans seen swimming off the coast this week in Long Beach, according to a news release issued by the aquarium. 

"Sperm whales are very rarely seen off Southern California, and orca sightings here are also uncommon," according to the news release. "Experts will delve into why these animals are here and discuss conservation issues involving whales in these urban waters."
