Mammal People,

Here is the wildlife count summary for Friday, April 6th

9am Adventure: 

1 Gray Whale 30 Inshore Bottlenose Dolphins 1 Harbor Seal (open ocean)

12noon Adventure: 

1 Gray Whale

10 Inshore Bottlenose Dolphins


1 Gray Whale

50 Long-Beaked Commn Dolphins 10 Inshore Bottlenose Dolphins

On the 9am trip, a fairly stealthy whale with no spout spray visible was playing hide and seek with us in the nearshore kelp.  We turned away to take a peak at some Bottlenose Dolphins and wouldn't you know it?  The whale breached twice.  If that was not enough fun for this secretive cetacean, it took a path directly at the boat through that thick Isla Vista kelp bed and spyhopped in the middle of the whole salad bowl.  Wow.  On the 3pm trip another whale came up next to a giant flock of Western Grebes on the surface. They were all hooting and calling the way they do.

I'll post up the photos of the trip tomorrow morning.
