An Otter, whales and lots of other mammals – Dec 3rd

Santa Barbara Channel Lovers, Today we had a fabulous day on the East Channel !  The Condor Expressly saw: 5 Minke Whales 300 Common dolphins

300 Rissos dolphins

40 Offshore bottlenose dolphins 1 Sea Otter 

That's right, the first otter of the winter season appeared today, just outside the Harbor.  And we've been seeing a lot of the most elusive baleen whale, the Minke, the smallest of all the baleen whales.  What a treat!  You just never know what this Channel will produce.   That's a megapod of Rissos by the way!   Ooooooo-eeeeeee… Remember, we are the only full time whale watching boat on the Channel these days and we run trips  W, Th, F, Sa and Sun.  You never know on a day to day basis what mother nature has in store.  But it is always an amazing day full of sea creatures and adventures on the high seas when the Condor Express leaves the dock every day at 10am regularly.  And if that is not enough to excite you and your customers, the Condor Express is now officially on its “off season” ticket price schedule:  $75 for adults and only $50 for kids.  Get the best for less! Enjoy the natural wonders of the Santa Barbara Channel and the northern Channel Islands while the weather is spectacular.  Sign up now and tell your friends.  There should be plenty of spots available for our next trip, but the only way to guarantee you'll have a ticket to board is to make a reservation if you have time, SO call 1-888-77WHALE or 805-882-0088 to get your name on the list. Photographs from most weekends/holidays will be available online at Best fishes and have a WHALE of a day ! Bob Perry Condor Express
