One gray and one fin

2018 03-20 SB Coast

The first day of spring brought more flat, calm seas.  Skies were overcast with a few scattered showers.  Total sightings for today’s single, 12-noon trip included:  1 fin whale and 1 gray whale.

Captain Dave and the crew of the Condor Express found all the action about 2 miles out from Santa Barbara Harbor.  The first encounter was with a juvenile gray whale.  This whale spent some nice time on the surface and everyone had good looks.  The second whale was a huge fin whale.  This species is the second-longest of all the whales and are second cousins to the giant blues.  The fin whale sighting was also very good and a treat to see.
