Sightings for Monday, June 4
Species List for today:
12 Humpback Whales (20 or more in the area)
3 giant Blue Whales (probably 6 more in the vicinity)
750 Common Dolphins
The krill is down and the whales are diving for them. Lots of “classic” Humpback tail flukes seen today, and one Humpback breached right off the bow to the cheers of the whale fans on board the Condor Express. One or two came over to take a look at the boat, again great close looks were had by all. Conditions were excellent, BUY…
There is a steep gradient between a high pressure region offshore and a low pressure area inland which is forecast to produce high winds and rough seas tomorrow. NOAA and the NWS have issued a gale warning and the Condor Express has cancelled all trips for Tuesday. Stay tuned for Wednesday and later this week as the system is supposed to move out of the area and reduce the rough seas and warnings.
C'mon out and join us, the water is fine.

Best fishes and have a WHALE of a day!
