Here are the species we watched closely today:
8 Humpback Whales (more in the binocular range)
4 Blue Whales (others seen in the area)
100 Common Dolphins
The wildlife show continued today, but the total counts were not quite as dramatic as earlier this week. You may recall that the Condor Express ran a special schedule today due to a morning private company charter. So by the time we reached the feeding grounds during at mid-afternoon, the wind and seas had puffed-up a bit and made wildlife spotting a bit more challenging than our normal morning departures. The good news is that we are back on our regular 10am to 230pm schedule for the near future. Even with the wind, the sightings were strong and several Humpbacks came right over to the boat to say hi. C'mon out and join the best Santa Barbara whale watching.
