3 CETACEAN SPECIES! | 3 Humpbacks, 1 Gray Whale, 300 Commons

Beautiful sunny skies with a slight bump greeted us in the channel this morning.

Only about 10 minutes outside the harbor, our crew spotted a huge feeding hotspot! Equipped with sea lions, dolphins, sea birds, and a juvenile humpback whale, there's no better way to start the day. The small humpback. likely only a few years old, rolled around right next to our boat. Seemingly playing with a huge school of anchovies, this whale clearly didn't learn to NOT play with its food. It delighted our passengers and crew with its adorable and boisterous charisma.

After shooting offshore to the shipping lanes, the wind picked up a bit as it tends to do offshore. We were still able to locate another pair of humpbacks, this time two adults. We enjoyed a few quick glimpses before we turned back towards the coast for calmer waters.

On the way home, we encountered a single sub-adult gray whale off Leadbetter beach before sending it back into the harbor.

Happy Whaling!
