Whale Report 3/19/18

Eight gray whales were closely watched on today’s 12-noon excursion.  Weather and sea conditions were fantastic…the ocean surface was like a lake.

About 3 miles offshore from Santa Barbara Harbor, Captain crew located a group of 5 whales.  The group spent most of the time on the surface and the whales were “socializing,” which included a lot of rolling around.  Pectoral fins and tail flukes were also evident at during the rolling.

After nice looks at the first 5 whales, a second group was located because one of the three whales in the group was very active.  The whale breached multiple times including when the boat was well within visual range.  What a sight!
