The humpback whales continue feeding event just outside of Moss Landing Harbor. They’ve been coming and going within about a five mile area. We’re seeing spouts within a mile of leaving the harbor and all the way out to about 4-5 miles.
Most of the anchovies seem to be deep. So we’re also seeing some long dive cycles. But when they come up, it’s awesome. Especially if the sea lions getting in on the action.
We’ve been seeing these marauding bands of 150-200 sea lions feeding alongside the humpbacks.
It’s neat to hear all the splashing and commotion of 200 some-odd sea lions surfacing all at once followed by the loud blast of whale spouts surfacing next to the boat. It’s quite the multi-sensory experience.
