Greetings Whale Afficianados,
Another wonderful day full of cetaceans! And this is what the Condor Expressly saw today:
1 Gray Whale – rolling and tumbling 35 Risso's Dolphins lots of young California Sea Lions
We came upon a crazy Gray Whale that was rolling around, as if “playing” with Risso's Dolphins and California Sea Lions all around it. It showed us its pectoral fins, its belly and did some “reverse” spy hopping…chin and neck out of the water upside down! Really great to see. I'll post the images online at: www.CondorExpressPhotos.com by Tuesday night.
Remember, the Condor Express is the ONLY full-time whale watching boat operating in the Santa Barbara Channel from Oxnard to Point Conception. You never know what Mother Nature has in store for you in the way of fabulous sightings when you come on board. We watch whales every day of the year (except Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day). Make your after-Christmas trip reservations now and join the Gray Whale migration and whatever else is happening out there. Call 888-77WHALE or 805-882-0088 to book your trip.
