Humpback and Blues – Humpbacks steal the show.
Marine Mammal lovers,
Here are the species we watched closely today:
1500 long-beaked Common Dolphins
8 Humpback Whales
3 Blue Whales
It was a trip to the west end of the Channel today with moderate winds and sea conditions, like we had yesterday. Towards the western end of Santa Rosa Island, and on the feeding grounds, the Blue Whales were on the surface and some lunge feeding was observed. Later we headed a bit east and ran into a mass of Humpbacks. 3 of the Humpbacks were very friendly, and one of them (a crusty little juvenile) came over and actully “mugged” us. What a special day it was !!
