Awesome day in the South Bay! About 20 minutes after leaving our harbor, deckhand Russell found us a migrating Gray Whale! This whale went north, then south, then north again.. We thought he might enter the harbor, but he ended up following the rock wall towards Hermosa Beach.
We left that Gray to follow up on some 25+ Pacific White Sided Dolphin! It was clear that while they did come over to the boat, they were on a mission to find some food. Not long after that Captain Morgan found us 3 Northbound Gray Whales - two that were together and one that was lagging behind. Of course we stopped by the Marine Mammal barge too and saw our Sea Lion locals. We also had huge pods of Common Dolphin spread out throughout our trips. 🐬
Sightings: Short-beaked Common Dolphins (300), Gray Whale (4), Pacific White Sided Dolphins (25), California Sea Lion (50)
