Gray Whale Season Ends with a bang.

The 2012-2013 gray whale season has officially ended for the Condor and Condor Express team. We are now off to deeper waters in search of humpbacks, blues, minkes, and fin back whales.

Today was glassy, calm, overcast and foggy for the first 2 trips of the day. The sun came out with a light breeze in the late afternoon. Even though the migration is slowing down, the mighty Condor prevailed on all three trips. Here are the counts: 7 gray whales (including 3 cow-calf pairs) 1 lone minke whale (seen only by yours truly out by Platform C) Lots of migrating loons and brandts were flying west all day. Several of the gray whale sightings involved whales making near-approaches to the Condor.

I’ll post up the photos from today by Monday evening (probably sooner) to

best regards Bob Perry Condor Express
