6/28 - What a summer whale season it has been ! ... There was plenty of stratus at the start of the excursion into the Santa Barbara Channel today, and some of it was fog on the deck. Luckily, things began to break into some good, clear sunny patches as we came up on our first marine mammals out near The Lanes. The ocean surface was very glassy all day and there was not a trace of wind. A small, long-period southwest was hardly even felt by most whale watchers. Needless to say, there were epic sightings as “the fog monster” was vanquished. What a whale season it has been !
Around 1120 am Captain Eric and the Condor Express reached The Lanes. It took longer than usual due to the fog. But it was worth the wait as we immediately located our first 4 (of 13 total) humpback whales ...

6/27 - Cetaceans found by sound and smell. ... Captain Eric and his fearless whale finder Auggie were put to the test today in the Santa Barbara Channel. The stratus was down on the deck all day with visibilities less than 100 feet at times. The cetaceans were found by sound and smell (and a lot of clean living) A total of 5 humpback whales were watched and great looks were had fairly close to the Condor Express.
On the way across the Channel and into The Lanes two moderately large herds of long-beaked common dolphins were encountered. They, of course, found us, we didn’t find them. The thick stratus seems to reduce glare and keep the surface glassy, and this makes for ideal dolphin watching conditions. There were about 800 total dolphins today.
Later, a single humpback...
