Here are the species we watched closely today:
12 Humpback Whales (more in the area)
6 Blue Whales (more in the area)
Some patches of dense fog made initial contact with these sentient beings a little challenging. But the keen “fog-cutting” eyes of Capt. Mat overcame the visibility obstacle Mother Nature tossed-up, and brought the Condor Express slowly into position for a fabulous day of sightings. There had to be at least 25 or more Blues and Humpbacks today, and when the fog did clear up, spouts could be seen all around the boat. Four of the Humpbacks broke loose from their activities to come over to the Condor and treat all on board to a close up and friendly introduction. As the day progressed, some of that subtropical flow and moisture settled into the Channel and it looks like the next few days will be ideal for sightings. Kudos to Mat and the crew for a fabulous adventure with Santa Barbara Whale watching !
