Spectacular lunge feeding Blues and Humpbacks

Sightings for Sunday, May 20

Species List for today:

10 Humpback Whales (many more in the area)

7 Blue Whale (more seen in the distance)

We headed across the Channel this morning with overcast skies that quickly dropped and turned to fog once we past the shipping lanes.  As if Poseidon was watching us, it seemed like wherever the Condor Express went in the Santa Barbar Channel today, a sunny “hole” in the fogg opened and made us warm and bright.  And Lo!  the krill is still on the surface here and there, and the Humpback Whales and giant Blue Whales were actively feeding on the surface.  It was spectacular.  The huge blue's feed then roll around showing us their pectoral fins.  The humpbacks open their jaws wide for all on board to see.  And it was not a good day to be a krill. I'm working on my photographs from today and should have them up by Tuesday afternoon.  Stay tuned.

C'mon out and join us, the water is fine.
