Santa Barbara Channel Status Report – July 5, 2011

Friends of the Channel, A fantastic day for weather and sea conditions.  It was sunny and clear and this is what the Condor Express watched closely:

500 Common Dolphins 120 Risso's Dolphins

What a wonderful abundance of Risso's Dolphins today … those globular-headed white dolphins with their mysterious ways and mouth that seems to smile.  UPDATE ON THE BIG BOYS:  Humpbacks have been seen northwest of the Channel.  Will they slide back into the feeding grounds?  They are wild animals, but it will be interesting to see what happens this week.

Sign up now to see the show, 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 now and see the Humpbacks, Blues, plus whatever else is happening out there in our wonderful Channel.  We are truly fortunate to live and play where we do, and this is the best it gets as far as the early Summer season goes.

Call 888-77WHALE  or 805-882-0088 to book your trip. Visit our NEW website: …or to view images from previous trips: In addition to the expert crew on the Condor Express with over 35 years of experience, Channel Islands Naturalist Corps volunteer naturalists, representatives from the Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary and National Park, are usually on board and available to answer your questions during the trip.  Best fishes and have a WHALE of a day! Bob Perry Condor Express
