The action still hasn’t stopped in The Monterey Bay. And most of the action is within a few miles from the Moss Landing Harbor. As we were just getting started and on the hunt for humpbacks, a scattered group of long-beaked common dolphins came buzzing through and began following us. That distracted us for about an hour.

During the dolphin mayhem we lost track of the humpbacks and decided to head further out in search of more humpbacks maybe some gray whales. We didn’t find any humpbacks out there. But we did find more dolphins and had great looks at a trio of gray whales.


Then on the way in, we came across three female orcas. So that was a nice way to end the trip. We also came across two humpbacks about two miles outside the harbor.
