Biologists are using an underwater microphone to try to guide a humpback whale out of Ventura Harbor.

The wayward whale that was stuck in the Ventura Harbor Saturday afternoon has returned to the ocean.

Large crowds gathered to see the whale, which is believed to be an adolescent, after it had journeyed into Ventura Harbour, east of Santa Barbara.

No further information was available.

Higgins says whale experts have identified it as a healthy juvenile.
