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…Details
Three trips, with beautiful seas yet again, all with a dozen or so humpbacks. This morning included 2 blue whales and several risso’s dolphin, and this afternoon trip yielded one of the best breaches I have ever photographed. The third trip? Several breaches, many tail throws, and a gorgeous sunset. What a day!!!!
Deja Deja Vu, and with Blue Whales! The same humpbacks continue to lunge feed with sea lions close to shore, and on our morning trip, we ventured west and found three blue whales! Killer weather, and wholesome passengers made for yet ANOTHER magical day on the water. Get it while its here!
Deja vu! Flat calm seas, GORGEOUS skies, and millions of anchovies being ravaged by dozens of humpback whales alongside hordes of sea lions. Each of three trips saw between 6 and 10 humpback whales, and 30-50 risso’s dolphins. Lunge feeds, sea shanties, and great people made for yet another memorable day.
Fantastic weather continues to hold, with fog only proving to be a slight nuisance (not really a problem). Humpback whales have moved into the bay, and three trips in a row found LARGE groups (6-10) within four miles of the harbor, all feeding on massive schools of anchovies alongside hundreds of sea lions and birds.…Details
After several immaculate days of calm seas, things boiled a bit on the water, as a rising breeze sent a lump through the bay: calm at first, though enough to cancel our 5pm tour (and making for a rocky afternoon. Otherwise, our passengers handled it well enough that I was very impressed with their fortitude…Details
Three stellar trips bled into one another, each producing about 6 to 8 humpback whales each, each with dozens of sea lions and hundreds of birds, all swarming what must have been a formidable school of anchovies the entire day. In the end, the humpbacks alone would account for some 360,000 anchovies lost to the…Details
Holy flying humpbacks! Today was a grand slam, three trip day of high flying humpback whales, with one “little” baby whale at the center of it all. Three trips in a row, and we found the same pair of humpbacks: a cow and her calf. Three trips in a row, and that calf put on…Details
Another one and done day, as rough seas loomed on the horizon, Captain Danny led us northwest, into intermittent fog which cleared up nicely, and just in time to find a handful of humpback whales, and a small group of Risso’s Dolphin who exhibited several breaches. Nothing crazy, but nothing bad! A fine day on…Details
Light overcast and mild seas set an ethereal tone over today’s trip, as Captain Danny led us out into the bay. Two humpbacks were sighted early on, though they were rather erratic and hard to watch. Hence, we abandoned them and quickly found a playful humpback, who flipped and flapped his tail and pecs, and…Details
