Clear blue water enhances sightings again

Clear blue water enhances sightings again

Captain Eric left Santa Barbara Harbor in fog so thick he could not see Stern’s Wharf.  Luckily it lifted in time for the #humpback #whale “Top Notch” to show up in crystal clear blue.  It was a wonderful sighting, but again the fog was closing in.  Eric left the area and headed for the world famous Painted Cave on Santa Cruz Island.  Long beaked common #dolphins were abundant all day, and at least 1,000 were closely watched…again the water clarity made the sighting even more spectacular.  Our visit to the Cave was good, and the waters around the Island had clear skies, no fog and lots of blue water.   An unusual sighting:   ONE lone Risso’s dolphin was observed near the Island.   It was strange to see it swimming solo for sure.  The fog is supposed to go away later this week.

Schedule notes:  we have no public whale watching on Tuesday or Wednesday this week.
