Whale Watch Monday

Posted on: 5-6-2019

Another beautiful day in the Santa Monica Bay! The Fin Whales are still in the area, a bit farther out than yesterday. We travelled along the Redondo Canyon to the drop off point where the water reached a depth of over 1000ft. Two Fin Whales were circling the area before they eventually started heading out towards Catalina Island. We also ran into Offshore Bottlenose dolphin, chasing baitfish throughout the bay. 🐬

Our next trip leaves on Thursday the 9th at 10am ~ you can pre-purchase your tickets now online at rbwhales.com !

Entangled Gray Whale update from Alisa Schulman-Janiger:

"Indian crew confirmed wrapped on the base of its flukes and trailing behind. They took assessment photos and called NOAA's Large Whale Entanglement team - coordinated by NOAA's Justin Greenman, and including NOAA's Lauren Saez and Lauren De Maio, Marine Mammal Rescue's Peter Wallerstein, and others. The Gray Whale Census volunteers tracked the whale for 80 minutes, providing the entanglement rescue team with crucial movement data that helped them relocate it later. The team cut some gear off, and attached another LARGE ORANGE POLY BALL MARKER BUOY as light failed. The buoy is attached to trailing gear with 50' of YELLOW line; it rarely submerges with the whale, who consistently followed the 180' contour line.
*If you see this whale: DO NOT APPROACH or try to disentangle it - stay at least 100 yards away from the whale and the orange marker float! DO STAY WITH IT: take photos, document it, and immediately call NOAA's Assistant Stranding Coordinator Justin Greenman at 707-496-7230, or the NOAA Entangled Whale Hotline 1-877-SOS-WHALE, and hail USCG on CH 16."

We had lots of Common Dolphins on our Easter whale watch this morning, but the real show-stopper was the local Fin Whale that hung outside of King Harbor Marina for 4 out of our 6 boat rides this afternoon! While it's uncommon to find whales on our 45 minutes boat ride tours, we were stoked to see the same Fin whale feeding off our local waters. Plenty of life out in the South Bay - so don't miss out!
