Blue water – blue whales

Captain Mat reports a nice sunny day in the Santa Barbara Channel today, with exceedingly clear water. There were five blue whales sighted today, and the view of these blue majestic beasts seen beneath the crystal water was very special. Everyone was thrilled. About 1,000 common dolphins were also observed throughout the trip. And the “icing on the cake” was the presence of nine ocean sunfish (Mola mola) watched in two groups, a group of six and a group of three. The were reportedly in the 100 pound each range.


Make plans to get out and see all this wildlife soon. Best regards
