3 Humpback Whales and at Least 1,000 Dolphins

3 Humpback Whales and at Least 1,000 Dolphins

Great sea conditions today and it’s supposed to get even better the next couple of days.   Captain Eric encountered 3 humpback #whales (one was Scarlet) around the same mid-Channel area where they have been feeding the past week or so.    Although many of the bottom times were long today, the star of the humpback show was a whale that came directly over to the Condor Express, rolled on its side and hung around in that posture while all of its fans on the boat went crazy.    The water was so clear you could see the eye of the beast looking directly up at you.  Throughout the day a steady stream of long-beaked common dolphins that played around us and kept all eyes on the water.   All in all a great trip for whales and #dolphins too.

Book your trip now while all this cetacean variety is with us in the Channel and great sea conditions persist. As a reminder, Sunday will be our last open whale watch until approximately January 23, as the boat will be undergoing its annual maintenance and Coast Guard inspection. Hope to see you on board!
