2016 05-14 SB Channel – East
Across mirror glass waters with an overcast marine layer, Captain Dave ran his trip to the far east to an area deep into the Flats where we had a really good show yesterday. Things were even better today and at least 3 very active, surface-feeding humpback whales were located and made several lazy close approaches to the Condor Express. Two Minke whales and at least 400 long-beaked common dolphins were also found on this hot spot. The dolphins were chasing bait upside-down along the glassy surface.
On the run across to Santa Cruz Island another single humpback whale was watched for a while in the Lanes, and then a nice tour of the eastern end of the Island ended inside picturesque Potato Harbor. Just outside Potato, on the way home, 2 more humpback whales were located south of the Lanes.
It was a fantastic excursion.
