08-14-2013 Humpbacks are hanging around Moss Landing

Moss is the place to be for whale watching in Monterey Bay right now. We have been viewing 8-12 whales daily very close to Moss Landing as they feed in wide circles on the abundant anchovies. The bird action has been stunning as well. The big prize yesterday was a huge adult humpback whale that came right alongside Sanctuary and breached three times – just to make sure all the passengers got a good look! Add molas, blue sharks and abundant jellies to the mix and we had a fantastic trip. To top it off the Pacific bottlenose dolphins treated us to some great views as they cruised right by the harbor mouth upon our return to port. Now is the time to see whales very close to shore here in Moss Landing!
