Two trips, nice conditions with humpbacks, grays and a mega pod of dolphins.

A patchy marine layer burned to a bright blue sky before 11am. Seas were calm and there was a light breeze at times. Two trips ran today: 9a and 12n. Totals for the day included 5 humpback whales, 1500 long-beaked common dolphins and 3 gray whales.


On the morning trip we were 4 miles outside of Platform Holly when we located 4 humpback whales. The group included a mother/calf pair and two adults. The were moving along slowly and showed nice tail flukes. A few miles inside of us, a mega pod of dolphins found the Condor Express and great looks were had.


Noon kicked of quickly with a pair of gray whales just 2 miles off More Mesa. The water was clear and we could follow these northbound adults easily. (See today’s photo as an example. A third gray whale was also watched in the area.  A few miles southeast of the gray whales we watched a single humpback whale actively feeding sub-surface and moving around in random directions.
