SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - The U.S. Coast Guard reports sightings of a whale in San Diego Bay.

Several pictures were posted online by San Diego Floating Lab, which is located off Shelter Island in America's Cup Harbor.

Captain Rick Scott of Ocean Odyssey took the photos. An employee at the business said it's common for juvenile whales to enter the bay, but they tend to find their way back out.

The Coast Guard has not determined what type of whale is in the bay.
