Whale and Dolphin Report – Sunday, Jan 16

Greetings Santa Barbara Whale Watchers,

It was a bright and sunny day full of cetaceans out in the Santa Barbara Channel today!  And this is what the Condor Expressly saw today:

5 Gray Whales 30 Risso's Dolphins 

The Grays were seen both in the middle of the Channel and up near the north face of Santa Cruz Island.  The Risso's were spectacular, surfing the open ocean blue water swells.  Wow.  Also, don't forget, a special MLK Day special Monday trip has been added.   Photos from today's adventure will be online tomorrow at our photo site:      Take a peek.

Remember, the Condor Express is the ONLY full-time whale watching boat operating in the Santa Barbara Channel from Oxnard to Point Conception.  You never know what Mother Nature has in store for you in the way of fabulous sightings when you come on board.  We watch whales every day of the year (except Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day).   Make your after-Christmas trip reservations now and join the Gray Whale migration and whatever else is happening out there.  Call 888-77WHALE  or 805-882-0088 to book your trip.   Visit our website: In addition to the expert crew on the Condor Express with over 35 years of experience, Channel Islands Naturalist Corps volunteer naturalists, representatives from the Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary and National Park, are also available to answer your questions during the trip. Best fishes and have a WHALE of a day! Bob Perry Condor Express
