Today was one for the record books. Just within a few miles of Moss Landing we had about 15 humpback whales working in pairs and sometimes coming together in foursomes to herd their food.
There was enough krill to bring in two huge blue whales that we observed feeding for the entire four and a half hour trip.
We also had great looks at a pod of Risso’s dolphins that were playing around some humpbacks.
But one young humpback really stole the show today. It started breaching, then tail lobbing, then pec slapping, then back to breaching. This went on for about an hour and a half all great viewing distance to the Sanctuary!
We were all astounded at this young whales energy and exuberance. This is one of those days we will never forget and why tell customers to keep coming out again and again. You never know when you’ll hit the whale jackpot!
