2/6 - Another Super Pod of Gray Whales ! ... These mild Santa Ana days are very special with their warmth, clear blue skies, and calm seas. And what a mind-blowing sighting we had just north of Chinese Harbor on Santa Cruz Island. It was amazing. Here are the details.
We ran for quite a while, heading due south, until we sighted our first marine mammals of the trip. It was a nice sized pod of long-beaked common dolphins with perhaps 250 in the group. We traveled with the pod and enjoyed each others’ company for a while before continuing our quest. We were in search of whales, tall spouts, humpbacks or grays, or who knows what else.
As we approached Santa Cruz Island it became obvious that many of the “tall spouts” we thought we saw from mid-Channel were, in fact, blow ho...

2/5 - A PULITZER PRIZE AND TONY AWARD-WINNER: I Am My Own Wife -- 2/5 ... By Doug Wright ..... Not long after the fall of the Berlin Wall, playwright Doug Wright began a conversation with Charlotte von Mahlsdorf, an elegant and eccentric 65-year-old German transvestite who, against all odds, hid from the Nazis in plain sight as a woman. Wright uses more than 30 characters — all played by a single actor — to piece together Charlotte’s controversial life. A profound story of survival. Directed by Jenny Sullivan.

2/4 - Humpbacks, Gray Whales and Dolphins (and sun!) ... Total sightings for the day included 4 humpback whales (1 of which we saw 3 times, but I didn’t “pad” the count), 5 gray whales and about 500 long-beaked common dolphins. It was another stunning day with bright skies and calm seas all day. Again, we had that “Conception to Mugu” visibility and there were no excuses for not seeing spouts at a considerable distance. These sunny winter days are among the best of the year in my opinion.
Things really got a hot start when we were about 3 miles south of Santa Barbara and heading in the general direction of mid-Santa Cruz Island. Here we were able to follow a trio of gray whales as they slowly meandered east, and were fairly preoccupied with what looked to us like courtship behavior...

2/3 - Epic Day for Weather and Whales ... Wow! It was such a gorgeous day full of mammals I’m speechless (almost). This was a cruise ship trip and seafaring passengers came off the big ship and got directly on to the Condor Express. To begin with, it was so crystal clear and sunny that you could see Pt. Conception to the west and Bony Mountain to the east including all 4 northern islands at once. The sea surface varied from rippled (Beaufort 1) to buttery glass (Beaufort 0). Totals for the day included 5 humpback whales, 6 gray whales, and 2,000 long-beaked common dolphins. This does not include hundreds of California sea lions, a handful of Pacific harbor seals (on bait barge), and all sorts of pelagic birds. Here is the story.
Captain Eric steered south towards multiple tall ...
