Another epic day of Southern California Whale Watching

Eight humpback whales with lots more in two areas surveyed on an epic day for Southern California Whale Watching. Several distant breaches and some tail lobbing was observed. We approached one humpback whale from a distance as it continually slapped its mighty pectoral fin on the water for many minutes. Others were working areas of obviously high productivity as indicated by thousands of feeding common dolphins and seabirds. At one point, after a brief visit to the famous Painted Cave of Santa Cruz Island, we encountered a few very shy Risso’s dolphins.

It was an overcast day which translates into meaning very light winds, a calm sea surface and very little swells. Back inside Santa Barbara Harbor we also observed several bottlenose dolphins.

I’ll post up the photos tomorrow or Tuesday. best, Bob Perry Condor Express
