Success! Despite indefatigable fog and smoke, The Pacifica was able to locate three humpback whales, who mercifully spent prolonged periods of time at the surface, making for good looks. The second trip found a mother and her young, both adorned with stark white undersides. The calf surprised us with two stellar breaches, one of them being very, very close to the boat. After two successful trips in the haze, mother nature decided that we had had enough, offering only skunks for the evening trip.
