Today was an adventurous day, with strong winds on the forecast and a thick wall of fog that stood before us as we left Monterey Harbor. Undeterred, Captain Danny pressed on, out west to the edge of the continental shelf, where the fog broke to reveal two massive humpback whales. Judging by their girth, these…Details
Today was an absolutely incredible trip aboard the Pacifica with Captain Rod, deckhand Reed, and myself. The weather had picked up a lot more than we had expected, so we had quite a few bumps on the way out. When the wind is high, although it means there is a bit more motion on the…Details
