Two nice coastal excursions with plenty of marine mammals

Captain Eric once again took charge of the mighty Condor Express and had two great whale watching trips today with a total of 6 gray whales, 200 long-beaked common dolphins and 50 Pacific white-sided #dolphins.
9am. Four gray #whales which consisted of 2 mothers and their calves. The calves got frisky. There were bubble blasts, kelp rolls, and spy-hops galore. The fan club on the Condor loved every minute. Later we accompanied 200 or so long-beaked common dolphins as they did their thang (rode bow, rode side wake and surfed the stern waves.
12 noon. One gray whale cow-calf pair with nice surface time and great looks. Later we encountered about 50 Pacific white-sided dolphins.
The weather was good, sea conditions good and a lot of fun was had by all.
You never know what Mother Nature has in store. Bob Perry Condor Express
