Ocean Enthusiasts and Friends, A record-breaking day of whale sightings on the western grounds near San Miguel Island again today. Here is what the Condor Express closely watched today: 37 Humpback Whales (surface feeding, breaching, slapping pectorals, rolling around, you name it!) 18 Blue Whales (surface feeding, racing) 75 Common Dolphins 5 Pacific White-sided Dolphins 100 Risso's Dolphins (scattered widely over the grounds)
200 California Sea Lions
2 Ocean Sunfish (Mola mola) [one was HUGE!]
Pelagic birds included abundant storm petrels and phalaropes, and a few sooty and pink-footed shearwaters, also Cassin's auklets.
We don't expect every day to be a “record breaker,” but things are HOT right now, so pass this information along to interested parties, please.
This is the prime time for our summer whales AND a great time to see the largest animal that ever lived on the planet: the Blue Whale…get on board and see for yourself !
