Blues and Lags run amok!

Channel Lovers,

Another day of fairly calm seas, and it was a day of unusual interspecies interactions.   This is what the Condor Express watched closely today: 4 Blue Whales  (more tall spouts in the distance) Humpback Whales  (in the area, but not followed closely)

1200 Common Dolphins 50 Pacific White-Sided Dolphins (aka, Lags, Lagenomorpha obliquidens)

We followed 4 Blue Beasts as they dove, spouted and raced around a bit.  A nice sized pod of White-Siders came in and the fun began. The White Siders rode the bow of the Condor Express when the whales were down, then moved over and rode the bow of the Blue Whales when they were up and racing.  This went on for over an hour.  Amazing interspecies interactions..   Sign up now to see the show, you never know what Mother Nature has in store for you in the way of fabulous sightings when you come on board. Make your reservations now and see the Humpbacks, Blues, plus  whatever else is happening out there in our wonderful Channel.  We are truly fortunate to live and play where we do, and this is the best it gets as far as the Spring season.  Oh, yeah! Call 888-77WHALE  or 805-882-0088 to book your trip. Visit our NEW website: …or to view images from previous trips: In addition to the expert crew on the Condor Express with over 35 years of experience, Channel Islands Naturalist Corps volunteer naturalists, representatives from the Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary and National Park, are usually on board and available to answer your questions during the trip.  Best fishes and have a WHALE of a day! Bob Perry Condor Express
