Another excellent day on the Monterey Bay. Plenty of Humpbacks to go around and shallow krill. There were at least eight humpbacks within about a 2-mile radius. We were hanging with two that were giving us excellent looks.
After about 30 minutes the next thing we knew there were four of them and they just cruised along feeding together in close formation. At one point two of them crossed under the boat and we had them on both sides of the boat about 25 yards off.
These humpbacks have been about 8-11 miles out on the South ledge of the Monterey Bay Submarine Canyon. So we’ve been averaging about an hour out to the zone. We certainly have our eyes open for blue whales also.
No dolphins today but we did see about 8-10 albatross cruising in the area. We also got a short glimpse of a young female elephant seal. It’s only going to get better as we get closer to April and then into May. This is the time of the year that we start to see more orca sightings and predation incidents. Stay tuned, we’ll keep you updated.
