This week we have had some beautiful weather and fantastic Marine Mammal sightings in our Santa Barbara Channel. There seems to have been a problem with our e-mail updates the last couple of days so I will recap our week so far:
Sunday, March 21, we ran 3 trips and watched a total of 12 Humpback Whales, 1 Gray Whale, and about 1500 Common Dolphin.
Monday, March 22, we ran 1 trip and watched a total of 2 Humpback Whales and 500 Common Dolphin.
Tuesday, March 23, we ran 2 trips and watched a total of 4 Humpback Whales, 3 Gray Whales, and about 1000 Common Dolphin.
Today was an eventful day on the water. The CONDOR Express ran 3 trips and we watched a total of 14 Humpback Whales, 2 Gray Whales, and about 75 Common Dolphin. We had Humpback Whales breaching, spyhopping, pectoral fin flaps, and friendly close encounters. Attached are a couple pictures one of our crew took from their Iphone.
Tomorrow the CONDOR Express is scheduled to run all 3 of its' trips at 9am, Noon, and 3pm. Please call SEALanding at 1(888) 77-WHALE to make a reservation.
We look forward to having you out,
The CONDOR Express Crew
