Last Day of Winter, March 19, 2011 Whale and Dolphin Sightings

Friends of the Condor Express,

On this last day of winter, and on the day when the moon is closest to the earth than the next 18 years, here is what the Condor expressly saw:

10 Humpback Whales 4 Gray Whales

1 Minke Whale 1,000 Common Dolphins

1 Mola mola (Ocean Sunfish)

2 Sooty Shearwaters

Dozens of Rhinoceros auklets

Several Cassin's auklets

1 Jaeger (Parasitic ?)

1 Common Murre

It was a cold, overcast day, a bit breezy but with calm sea conditions and stunning clear visibility…perfect for seeing those spouts.  You never know what Mother Nature has in store for you in the way of fabulous sightings when you come on board. Make your reservations (9am, 12 noon, or 3pm) now and see the mighty Gray Whales as they migrate back home to Alaska, plus  whatever else is happening out there in our wonderful Channel. Call 888-77WHALE  or 805-882-0088 to book your trip.

Best fishes and have a WHALE of a day!
