Captain Dave reports from the West End of Santa Cruz Island, surrounded by humpback whales. He says at least 5 at the island that came up and make friendly introductions, plus one juvenile that breached over and over for at least a half an hour straight. Two more humpbacks were observed closer to shore, and you guessed it, one of them was our old pal “Rope.” Rope’s friend, sadly, had fresh propeller scars across its back.
Two pods of common dolphins totaling over 500 animals were also encountered.
what a show!
