Report: Cetacean Society 8-hour Whale Trip

Channel people,

Another spectacular day with a light breeze on the Channel.  This was one of the summer Cetacean Society of LA all day expeditions and here is what we watched closely today:

20 Blue Whales 20Humpback Whale 3,500 Common Dolphins

Among those listed above,  there were 3 Blue Whale mother-calf pairs and one was the same pair we've been seeing all week.  The Blue Whales did a bit of “racing,” there was an inordinate amount of fluking up, some rolling around behavior, and a few close approaches too.  Although no Humpback calves were seen on this trip, there were tight associations of 3, 4, 5 and even 7 Humpbacks together at one point.  In addition to those listed,  there were many many more spouts in the area that we could not closely watch, even on this 8-hour expedition.  Of course, the young sea lions were all over trying to pester the big boys (and girls).

We have had quite a few days with dense populations on the grounds.  Who knows what the future may bring.  Suggestion:  sign up now and get in on all the action while it lasts.  The Audubon Society has a deep water pelagic bird trip tomorrow (Saturday) and then Sunday we're back on teh regular whaling schedule.
