It was nice to be able to get in some decent marine life viewing before the winds picked up. We seem to be getting into our spring weather cycle. Manageable in the morning and then whipping up quick in the afternoon.
We had whales pretty close in still. So that was good. Pretty much straight out in front of Moss about 6-8 miles.
But the leaping Pacific White-sided dolphins were what I enjoyed the most. The cool people call them “Lags”. That’s short for their scientific name: Lagenorhynchus obliquidens.
We had an active pod of a 200-300 of them riding with us. Jumping out of the water, racing all around the boat. It was a lot of fun.
