Humpbacks make a big fuss amidst thousands of dolphins

2018 10-18 SB Channel

Captain Dave and the crew of the Condor Express worked the northwestern region of the Santa Barbara Channel today.  Sightings included 3 (very active) humpback whales and 2000 long-beaked common dolphins.

All the action took place about 8 miles out from El Capitán point.  Seas were calm, skies were sunny and bright.  Our first encounter was with a wild pair of whales that breached together repeatedly, very close to the boat.  Scads of dolphins were in the mix.  Soon a third whale joined  up and the trio began to engage in socializing behaviors such as rolling, vocalizing, and coming very close to the Condor Express.  Fantastic!
