California humpback whale watching

California humpback whale watching

Friday, October 5, 2012

California humpback whale watching was pretty good today. A great adventure out to the east Channel today found two humpback whales. One of the humpback whales was our friend “Rope.” After great looks at the two humpbacks, we ran along the face of Santa Cruz Island, part of our Channel Islands National Park, where we watched numerous harbor seals hauled out on the beaches. A bald eagle was also sighted. Magnificent. On the way home, a pod of 600 or so common dolphins rode alongside the Condor Express which was a lot of fun.
