7/29 - One of the All-Time Summer Excursions ! ... The following raw numbers do not tell the whole story ..... Humpbacks = 4 ... Blue whale = 1 ... Minke whales = 2 ... Risso’s dolphins = 50 ... Common dolphins = 1,200.
So here is the entire saga. Sea conditions were optimum, flat, no wind, sunny and we still had that very blue, clear water. We initially ran to the far east, then moved west along the north edge of the shipping lanes. Just past Habitat, on the first (easterly) leg we spotted our first humpback whale and had great looks as we followed along at a safe distance. Many long-beaked common dolphins were also in the area. We continued to move east.
Out near the G-Spot and the southern edge of The Flats there were 3 more humpback whales. This included a mothe...

7/27 - Minke, Humpback, Commons and Bright Sun ... Another bright, sunny day in the Santa Barbara Channel made it perfect for finding spouts and enjoying cetaceans. There was a moderate breeze and some small seas, too, which enhanced the #whale and #dolphin viewing. Captain Eric and his crew took an easterly approach today and along the route had 3 or 4 nice pods of long-beaked common dolphins totally 250 or so for the day.
Down east in the “G-spot” region (between the 3 “G” oil platforms) we got great looks at a Minke whale that acted more like a humpback. It ran a nice line, had regular down times and excellent surface looks. Later the crew located a nice humpback whale with unusually light skin, given the great underwater visibility, you could really see this whale down dee...
