As international tourism blossoms once again in Monterey Bay, business is doing quite well. All three of our boats were sent out this morning in search of creatures large and strange, all of which were readily found. Lunge feeding humpback whales, Risso’s Dolphin, and even a mighty Blue Whale were all found on the morning trip, which also boasted fantastic weather. Being shorter, our afternoon trip stayed closer to home, and found yet another group of lunger feeding humpbacks. Every few minutes, massive shoals of anchovies would burst from the water, signaling where the lunge would occur. Some 400 sea lions, and dozens of gulls also helped aid in tracking the whales (they all frenzy upon the anchovies). The evening tour was much the same, though weather did deteriorate as that old familiar wind began to rise. Otherwise, our passengers held up quite well, and we are proud of them all. Today’s internationals included people from Spain, Mexico, France, Denmark, Sweden, Germany, Holland, England, India, Hungary, and Vietnam. Many thanks to all of them!
