A single morning trip was spectacular.

The morning trip was the only trip today, and it was a doozie. There was no wind, bright sun, and slight ripples on the surface. Water clarity continued to be excellent. Sighting for this trip included: 75 offshore bottlenose dolphins and 3 gray whales.  Details below.

 

After a search pattern that took us up to Goleta, then an offshore run back to the east, a wonderful pod of very active offshore bottlenose dolphins located the Condor Express south of The Kelp Farm. We saw lots of leaping, high-flying and friendly boat-wake-riding. Numerous calves were seen in the mix.

 

About a mile from the dolphins, our path intersected 3 medium-sized adult gray whales all northbound. On the scene, we saw the trio actively socializing. Lots of rolling around, body rubbing, etc. was going on. There were a couple of “Pink Floyd” sightings too. (Questions?  Send me an email)

"Whenever I find myself growing grim about the mouth; whenever it is a damp, drizzly November in my soul; whenever I find myself involuntarily pausing before coffin warehouses, and bringing up the rear of every funeral I meet; and especially whenever my hypos get such an upper hand of me, that it requires a strong moral principle to prevent me from deliberately stepping into the street, and methodically knocking people’s hats off- then, I account it high time to get to sea as soon as I can." -- H.M. 1851
