Gray Whales, a breaching Humpback Whale and lots of Dolphins

Gray Whales, a breaching Humpback Whale and lots of Dolphins

Two trips today (9a and 12noon) under clear blue skies, flat seas and very hot air temperatures.  It is Summertime in the Spring and the sightings were very very good.  On the 9am trip we saw a wonderful mother gray whale with her calf.  They were heading west to Alaska and were very regular as well as not particularly shy.   About 300 long beaked common dolphins put the icing on the cake for the 9am trip.

On the noon adventure we found another very nice mother gray whale and calf.   As was seen earlier in the day, this pair also gave great looks to all.  As we left the gray whales behind and headed offshore to survey the outer waters, a humpback whale breached right in front of the Condor Express.  Ka-boom!   We followed this humpback for a while and also noted at least one more humpback spout in the distance.   250 long beaked common dolphins through the whole thing over the top.

Tomorrow we are planning a 9, noon and a 3pm trip. You never know what Mother Nature has in store.
