02-03-2012: Gray Whales, Great looks at Risso’s Dolphins and Bow-riding Pacific White-sided Dolphins, Outstanding Marine Conditions

We covered some water today. When the ocean conditions are glassy and it’s as nice out there as it was today, we love to do a little exploring. Today we ended up south of Point Lobos. Sometimes gray whales will lure us south. The southbound grays had more time between pulses today. We only saw had a handful whales for the two hours we were in the zone. On the way in we heard reports of another pulse.

But we did have excellent looks at Risso’s Dolphins and some bow-riding Pacific White-sided Dolphins and had a warm, calm day on The Bay.

Here’s some incredible video footage from a trip in November. It’s one of the best encounters we’ve had.
