Friends of the Condor Express,
As your faithful reporter, I am running out of superlatives to describe the massive quantities and thrilling close encounters that we have been experiencing for the past several weeks. So, depleted as I am of verbiage, here is what we got close to and followed today:
4 Blue Whales 12 Humpback Whales 2500 Common Dolphins
Several Humpbacks mugged the boat, usually in groups of 4 or 5 at a time…gang attack! The Humpies also rolled around a lot and a few slapped their pectoral fins. Mixed in the Blue Whales we found a mother and her calf. I honestly suggest you drop everything you are doing and get out on here while the conditions last. Ask yourself: what is more important that going eyeball to eyeball with these sea monsters?
Our expeditions are accompanied by trained and articulate naturalists from the Channel Islands Naturalists Corps. They circulate among the whale watchers and help provide interesting views and news. You will recognize these volunteers by their blue shirts and jackets (and name tags).
Call 888-77WHALE or 805-882-0088 to book your trip.
