A Minke joins the Humpbacks and Blues + Mola mola too

Friends, Romans and Whale Lovers,

Yesterday's big swells and high winds died down quite a bit and the sun came out too.  It was easy pickins' for whales out near the Channel Islands today, as they moved east and closer for the Condor Express.  Here are the cetacean (and fish) totals:

50 common dolphins

1 Minke Whale

3 Blue Whales

10 Humpback Whales

10 small Mola mola (Ocean sunfish)

What a cetacean adventure we had out there today.  Two of the Humpbacks were extremely “friendly,” and approached the boat to say hi.   Humpback tail flukes were also abundant.  Along the way we saw a cluster of juvenile, dinner plate sized, Mola mola.  What a treat as they swam directly up to the Condor Express.  By the way, photos from yesterday's adventure are now online for your enjoyment.
