8/28 - Blue Whales Saturday, Humpbacks on Sunday ... A quick note regarding Saturday’s all-day, annual American Cetacean Society excursion. Sightings included a couple of humpback whales in the Santa Barbara Channel, several hundred pelagic bottlenose dolphins, thousands of both short- and long-beaked common dolphins, and, the Pièce de résistance, 8 or 10 giant blue whales located in pelagic waters well south of San Miguel Island. Now, onward to the present day.
Totals for Sunday included 5 humpback whales and at least 2,500 long-beaked common dolphins. The day began with hazy sun, no wind and a very light bump on the water. Later, and further offshore, conditions became more robust.

8/27 - Sea Lion Mob ... Captain Dave hit the jackpot with 12 closely watched humpback whales, over 3,000 long-beaked common dolphins, and, a huge sea lion mob, “thousands of California sea lions,” says Dave. The day began with a low stratus layer and light seas. The marine layer burned off to sun later in the day.
Two of the humpback whales found us about 5 miles north of Santa Rosa Island along The Ledge. Lighting was flat due to the stratus, but our dedicated crew somehow located these beasts despite the clouds. Hundreds of dolphins an sea lions swarmed around this first hot spot.
Moving onward, the next hotbed of life included 2 humpback whales, joined by 4 more, and finally 5 additional whales came on the scene. In the distance some surface lunge feeding was seen if yo...
