Two Gray Whales Get Frisky
One trip today left the docks at 12noon for the Santa Barbara Channel. There was a moderate breeze at first, but then it calmed down quite a bit. We ran along the coast to the west and ultimately located a pair of gray whales heading northbound. One #whale was bigger than the other, but the smaller one was not a calf. The two migrated without much fanfare and we had great looks. Then, as we reached the end of our trip near the Goleta Pier, the two started spy hopping and rolling around. On the way back to the harbor a few long-beaked common dolphins came over and ran with the Condor. All in all it was a great trip on a day when the sky was bright and sunny with puffs of huge storm clouds here and there all around us.
