Friends and Associates,
Us citizens of the western Santa Barbara Channel are accustomed to cooler waters, more moderate breezes, and the wildlife that this great combination produces. We love it. However today our beloved western realm had a tad MORE than just moderate breezes…there was a full Gale with rough seas thrown in the mix. The wise old Captain Mat decided to cast our fate to the calmer east Channel today. We found great mild summer weather and calm seas there, and a special species treat today as well:
300 Offshore Bottlenose Dolphins Various assorted California Sea Lions in the mix
The big bottlenose were in three distinct groups 150, 50 and 100, stretching from Anacapa Passage to a point a few miles south of the Arch. FYI: We'll be back with dense populations on the western shelf break as soon as the Gale warnings are lowered. In the meantime, these highly animated and large dolphins are amazing to see. I'll post up the photos from this expedition tomorrow morning so you can see for yourself. Wow!
