Humpback whales breaching and more

2016 02-23 SB Channel

Captain Dave and his crew took the Condor Express into The Triangle today and had great looks at 5 humpback whales alongside at least 300 long-beaked common dolphins. There was great weather and sea conditions during the trip and here are some highlights:

12noon The first humpback we located had long down times so after some good looks, Dave moved over to a area where there was a breach or two in the distance. Here we watched 3 more humpback whales which had shorter down times and even came close to the boat at one point for a friendly approach.

A solo humpback whale (the fifth of the trip) was seen breaching too…again it was a little ways away when it telegraphed its location and enabled us to navigate there and enjoy watching.

It was a warm and sunny day, and tomorrow is expected to be similar. Hope to see you on board before the fabled El Niño shows up.
