Naturalist log for Sunday, February 6th
Naturalist Log, Saturday December 11th: Brr!!! Ice on the dock this morning, as a full load of Saturday passengers shuffled onto the Pacifica with their gloved hands stuffed in their coats, and colorful beanies capped their heads. Thankfully, the sun shone brightly, and conditions were otherwise beautiful out at sea, and Captain Danny spotted 4 ( particularly massive) humpback whales (after I spotted a small pod of Risso’s Dolphin). After a long time of watching the chunky beasts, we hit Carmel Bay (not litteraly) and ran the gorgeous coastline with hopes of finding some Grey Whales. Nay, a coastal scenic tour it was, though a succesful trip regaedless. Our second trip found two humpback famous whales: Fluke Skywalker and her mother Aurora! No sooner did I tell the passengers, “Keep your eye on that Skywalker, she’s an avid breacher,” did Aurora proceed to launch her massive girth sky high, to which Skywalker responded in kind! Double breach, oh yeah baby!
