Fresh breeze, sunny skies, great whales and dolphins.

2021 07-21 SB Channel

There were sunny skies with a light breeze blowing through our neck of the Channel. Sightings included: 1 Minke whale, 2 humpback whales and 3000 long-beaked common dolphins. One deflated, floating helium balloon was salvaged from the ocean to help protect our environment and its wildlife.

The lone Minke whale found the boat about 3 miles out from the harbor. We had good looks as this relatively shy animal surfaced 2 or 3 times, before we went our separate ways.

Common dolphins were, once again, very abundant on our travels today. The first pods found us southwest of Platform Holly, and, from that point onward, we had non-stop pods throughout the trip. The first of two large, adult humpback whales was also watched at this location. I did cruise by the Condor Express once or twice, but I would not call it a legitimate “close approach.”

Captain Dave and his crew moved the boat a short distance when our second large, adult humpback was found in the midst of common dolphins. We spotted this whale because it threw its mighty tail a few times when we were a mile away. It, too, cruised by for a fleeting look at its fan club.
