What a nice way to spend the morning.

2020 03-03 SB Coast

A very happy “Super Tuesday” to all you voters and whale lovers. We ran a single trip today which left the docks at 9am. Conditions were very good and the marine life was phenomenal. Sightings included: 6 gray whales, 1 humpback whale and 200 long-beaked common dolphins.

Captain Dave and his crew encountered the first gray whale just outside the harbor entrance buoy and followed it up to the lighthouse. At this point the Condor Express “turned left,” and moved about 4 miles offshore where a nice pod of common dolphins were swimming and feeding. After a while a humpback came into the spot and systematically gobbled down patch after patch of anchovy bait balls. This feeding included lots of surface lunge-feeding episodes, and some of these episodes were sideways (as well as in a regular, up and down position).

Even further south, now about 6 miles offshore, a series of nice spouts turned out to be 4 more northbound migrating grays. We followed carefully behind and had a wonderful time.
