Trip report for Friday, Oct 30: The eve of All Hallow’s Eve started out with a spooky vibe; a thick wall of fog enveloped us as we set out from Monterey Harbor. However, within 30 minutes, we burst through the other side and into a wide world of blue skies, blue water, and a crisp horizon. Not long after, a group of three humpbacks made an appearance. So cooperative were these whales, and so well did they fluke up that we watched them, happy as clams, until time to return. The afternoon trip was much the same (minus the fog). Three (different) humpbacks were found, though this time, one of them- a calf- decided to play friendly with the boat. Several times, railside passengers were blasted in the face by humpback snot, though none complained. Before anyone knew it, it was time to go home. Thumbs up, all around.
