Friday July 16 – Whale and Dolphin Report
It was up to the whale feeding grounds near Santa Rosa Island today, and the sightings were spectacular. We closely watched:
3 Blue Whales 250 Common Dolphins
1 Pacific Harbor Seal
200 California Sea Lions But again, the “behind the scenes” story is special: 2 of the giant Blue Whales were a mother and her calf. In fact, even though the Santa Barbara Channel covers many square miles of territory, this was the same mother and calf we have been seeing almost daily for the past 2 weeks. Fate has brought us together, or so it seems. The days ahead are forecast to continue these magnificent sightings. No where else in the world can one get close to such a great variety of whales and dolphins.
You can always direct interested persons to our photographic site for the daily images: www.CondorExpressPhotos.com
There is still room aboard tomorrow's trip. We depart 7 days a week at 10am and return to the Sea Landing in Santa Barbara Harbor around 230pm. Call 1-877-WHALE for reservations.
Best fishes and have a WHALE of a day!
