The lunge feeding frenzy continues with many humpbacks about 5-miles outside of Moss Landing Harbor. It’s nice to be with whales within 30-minutes of leaving the harbor. There were at least 15-20 whales in about a mile or two area. We could see distant blows, the occasional distant breach or splash.
And then there was the lunge feeding and abundant krill swarms. We were even able to collect some sample specimens for a krill researcher at UCSC’s Long Marine Lab.
We also came across a nice pod of Risso’s dolphins and heard reports of more humpbacks and blue whales in other parts of The Bay. Hopefully the nice weather will continue into the week. Still have plenty of room on all our trips this week.
