3 humpbacks, 100 dolphins

2015 11-27 SB Channel

Captain Eric and the crew found the first of their humpbacks along the 50-fathom curve six miles south of Santa Barbara. At first these two whale had long down times, but eventually “warmed up” and paid a couple of friendly visits to the Condor Express.   Sea conditions were good, with a mild breeze and small swell. After some quality time with the first 2 humpbacks, Eric turned east to put the wind and swells astern.

Approximately 100 long-beaked common dolphins were located next and we had great looks all around the boat. Finally 2 more tall spouts were seen further to the east, and one of them was very cooperative and turned out to be a wonderful humpback sighting.

At the end of the day, we watched 3 humpbacks closely, saw another 3 in the distance, and ran along with 100 common dolphins.
