Whale Watch Tuesday
Posted on: 3-26-2019
We started off the trip by following the Redondo Canyon and some scattered pods of Common Dolphin. Schools of baitfish were spread throughout the bay. While searching for migrating Gray Whales we found a handful of Bottlenose Dolphins. All dolphins seen today were busy chasing fish, not too interested in bow-riding. We were making our way back to the dock when we noticed a disturbance in the water ahead of us. It turned out to be a very small Humpback Whale calf basking at the surface! While we stopped to watch, it was clear that the calf was resting on it's mother's back. This Cow/Calf pair would spend 5 to 7 minutes underwater, as they milled back and forth.
Sightings: Short-beaked Common Dolphins (200), Humpback Whale (2), Bottlenose Dolphins (5)
