It just keeps on getting better. Moss Landing continues to be the hot-spot for large concentrations of feeding humpbacks and the occasional dolphins. The anchovies are bunching up against the canyon ledges and the humpbacks seem to be taking advantage of it.
The weather is everything out there. I always look to forward to calm days like we had today. Warm and glassy. Very little wind and no swell.
As has been the case every day for the last year and a half, today we were on the action as soon as we left the harbor.
In fact, we were seeing blows before we left the harbor. So that’s always cool. After about 30-minutes of hanging with a handful of whales, we noticed a breacher about a mile out to the west so we made a course and the show was on.
Another chronic breacher. This animal jumped completely out of the water at least 20 times. Then it would surface on it’s side and slap it’s massive pectoral fin against the water.
We pretty much spent the rest of the trip watching this humpback throwing itself out of the water and slapping it’s pectoral fin for almost 2 hours.
