What a two day stretch. Here's the tally:
Sightings for Thursday: 2 Humpback Whales
500 Long-beak Common Dolphins
50 Risso's Dolphins
Sightings for Friday 2 Gray Whales 100 Common Dolphins
That's right. Two Humpbacks on Thursday. The water was crystal clear and you could see the Humpies swim under the boat. Friday brought some wind and seas to the West, so we ran East to find more Grays.
ATTENTION: THERE ARE ONLY A FEW DAYS LEFT OF THIS AMAZING SOUTHBOUND GRAY WHALE MIGRATION OUT AT THE ISLANDS. TOO SOON THEY WILL BE DONE FOR 2012 AND THE SCHEDULE WILL SHIFT TO COASTAL 2.5 HOUR TRIPS FOR NORTHBOUND WHALES RETURNING TO THE ARCTIC. DON'T MISS THIS SHOW WHILE YOU STILL HAVE A GREAT CHANCE OF SEEING UNPREDICTABLE WILD BEHAVIORS. PASS THE WORD TO YOUR CLIENTS AND FRIENDS WHILE THIS SPECTACULAR SUNNY WEATHER CONTINUES TO SHINE UPON US AND BRING GOOD FORTUNE.
