Wednesday’s morning trip was a foggy one. Due to extremely low visibility we had a lot of trouble keeping on any whales at all. With Captain Danny, Fredo as crew, and a load of 14 passengers, the Pacifica carried us north, just off the coast of Moss Landing. We saw big flocks of sooty shearwaters, Brandt’s cormorants, and the occasional raft (group) of sea lions. Also, under the boat, using our sonar, we saw mind-boggling amounts of anchovies. These schools were 100 feet tall, and several hundred yards in diameter. With all this food around we knew there were whales, we just couldn’t see more than 75 yards around the boat! In all we briefly saw 5 humpback whales, but as soon as they’d dive, they would be gone. This was not the type of trip we like to be remembered by, so we gave each passenger on board a raincheck (a ticket for a free trip with us that never expires).
