The northbound bound gray whales continue to be a sure thing. We’ve been finding them 8-10 miles out just south of Moss Landing Harbor. We’ve also been seeing a lot of common dolphins this week as well as a feeding humpback.

On Sunday we had a great look at the fur seal pictured below.

We have heard reports of other humpbacks in The Bay and on Saturday there were reports of orcas in The Bay.

The weather has been pleasant with calm conditions in the morning and windy in the afternoon. Good Krill production conditions.

Hopefully more humpbacks will start to show up. We didn’t see one on Sunday. Only grays and dolphins. We’ll keep you updated.
