Yippy kayay! Large ocean swells greeted us this morning, as captain and co-owner Mat took the helm, and deftly found us a bounty of animals. All told, our morning trip saw 2 humpback whales, a large group of 7 grey whales, twenty risso’s dolphin, and 15 harbor porpoise (who gave us great looks). As the winds began to rise, we quickly made for Monterey to pick up an afternoon trip. The second tour was greeted by the mighty of the sea, with roller coaster mode fully engaged. Early on, we found a group of two humpbacks, which we watched for a long while before spotting a handful of Risso’s dolphin. We watched the dolphin until the winds and waves became strong enough that we made our way home. Just before the harbor, we crossed paths with a handful of bottlenose dolphin, and dozens of sea otters. Ultimately, we came home a bit on the early side, though our passengers were very enthusiastic, and smiles were shared by all of us. What a ride!
