Tons of humpback whales

2016 06-30 SB Channel

Fifteen humpback whales (more in the distance) plus 2,000 or more long-beaked common dolphins made for a busy day of cetacean enjoyment on the Condor Express.  All of the action was within 7 or 8 miles of Santa Barbara and ranged from the Harbor entrance to the west.  Highlights of the day included several breaching humpback whales, a few distant surface lunges, and an array of tail lobs and tail throws, some very near the boat.  The sun was out and the fog we’ve battled all week was blown away by a moderate sea breeze.
