2021 12-05 SB Channel
Captain Devin and his crew found good conditions in the Channel with clear, hazy skies and calm seas. Sightings included: 1 humpback whale and 300 long -beaked common dolphins. The crew also removed 3 more deflated balloons from the ocean surface which potentially saved marine animal’s lives.
A small herd of dolphins was watched for a short while about 4 miles off The Mesa at the start of the trip. Devin moved up the coast and angled out to a spot 8 miles off UCSB. Here a few hundred dolphins were active and a single sub-adult humpback was located. The beast was heading east (sorry about the rhyme). It was a long-winded whale but it gave some nice tail fluke looks as Devin somehow managed to stay with it.
