7/22 - A great day in the northern Channel ... ... A great day in the northern Channel with tons of humpback whales and long-beaked common dolphins. Captain Eric and his crew had a wonderful trip and there was never anything but a few minutes total in which dolphins were not all around the Condor Express. Over 2,500 dolphins and 4 humpback whales were watched closely, with more whales in the area.
Things got rolling a few miles out from Santa Barbara when the first batch of a few hundred dolphins were found chasing northern anchovies around. The bait fish were in little groups (not huge bait balls) and thus the dolphins kept busy moving around on the hunt.
West of the dolphins we started to find humpback whales. One was particularly friendly and did circles around the boa...
7/21 - Friday Night ... Free Summer Film Series (To Have and Have Not) ... Friday night under the stars: bring blankets or a low-backed beach chair (max 34 in.), a picnic and your friends! Loosely based on Ernest Hemingway's novel, To Have and Have Not takes us to Martinique during World War II, where charter boat captain Harry Morgan (Humphrey Bogart) maintains a policy of strict neutrality toward the war. But everything changes when he meets the young American cabaret singer Marie Browning (Lauren Bacall, in her screen debut) and a fugitive leader of the French Resistance who both need a way off the island. With the film’s legendary “You know how to whistle, don't you?” scene, its enduring popularity is in large part due to the chemistry between Bogart and Bacall, whose on-screen affair ...
7/20 - ETC Announces Ownership of the New Vic ... Ensemble Theatre Company (ETC) is thrilled to announce the company has acquired full ownership of its state-of-the-art New Vic Theater in downtown Santa Barbara, a purchase made possible by a $950,000 grant from the former City of Santa Barbara Redevelopment Agency, and by the extraordinary vision and generosity of Kandy Luria-Budgor and Leatrice Luria.

7/20 - July 20, 2016 – Santa Barbara ... California Whale Watching – you can never get enough! It was windy from the get-go today, but it was a nice warm wind and there was not much swell so the ride was a good one. The further we pushed offshore to the southwest, the stronger the winds were. But as luck would have it, we encountered a honey hole full of whales and dolphins and had an epic adventure. Totals for the day included 2,300+ common dolphins, 1 Minke whale (more in the area), 6 humpback whales (many more spouts in the zone), and several hundred California sea lions organized into a few nice mobs. The bird of the trip was the elegant tern and was found on each of the many hot spots we visited.
Speaking of hot spots, the first one was about 1 mile southeast of Santa...

7/16 - Blue Whale etc. etc. ... Seas were calm and the cetaceans were abundant on this wonderful day in the Santa Barbara Channel. Skies had a thin stratus layer with sunny “sucker holes” until mid-afternoon when the clouds were vanquished once and for all. Animal totals for the trip included 7 humpback whales (many more in the distance), 1 giant blue whale (several other tall spouts in the area), 1,200 or more long-beaked common dolphins, and lots of California sea lions. The sea bird of the day was a nice, light-colored northern fulmar that let the Condor Express pass by without flushing. Here’s how things happened today:
Around 1045 am a group of around 100 or so dolphins found us and we had great sightings for a few minutes, with the promise of more dolphins in the distance....
