03-11-2013: Back in Moss Landing, Excellent Conditions, Humpbacks, Gray Whales, Pacific White-sided Dolphins and More

It’s nice to be back in Moss Landing after a week of being in Baja hanging with the gray whales and blue whales. We had excellent conditions today with humpbacks, gray whales, Pacific white-sided dolphins and  a nice look at a young northern fur seal. There were also reports of orcas in The Bay.

It appears that the humpbacks are here to stay. With regular sightings of humpbacks and blues over the last few weeks it’s pretty clear that we have an early spring whale watching season upon us.

The wind really blew hard on Friday and Saturday. These type of strong northwesterly winds is what brings about the massive krill blooms we see in the spring and early summer. And we have been seeing plenty of krill around. So it’s just going to get better and better.
