A giant blue whale is seen in the bright summer sun.
Condor Express Photos Augie gets a Blue Whale Augie, a deck hand on the Condor Express, has many talents and this week one of them has really come to light. He has what we like to call “whale eyes.” And today his whale eyes spotted a giant blue whale. Now keep in mind this whale had down times running between 8 and 10 minutes, so the Condor Express could easily have cruised right past it. Thanks, Augie! Weather and
Ideal conditions again on the Santa Barbara Channel feeding grounds. Today we watched as 8 humpback whales and 6 Minke whales gorged themselves on anchovy schools. The humpbacks were once again lunge feeding on the surface for all to witness. At least 1,000 common dolphins were observed (plus or minus) feeding alongside the seabirds, whales and sea lions. Hope to see you on board.
Tell ’em Bob sent you. Bob Perry
