Daily Whale and Dolphin Report:
Here are the species we watched closely today:
2 Blue Whales
1100 Common Dolphins
10 Dall’s Porpose
20+ Northern Elephant Seals (on the beach)
Hundreds of California sea lions (on the beach)
A wonderful adventure to the far west Channel and San Miguel Island today, including a visit to beautiful Cuyler Harbor. Near Cuyler, we spotted dozens of huge northern sea elephants hauled out on the beach, along with hundreds of California sea lions. What a sight. Sea conditions were great for such a trip. Just outside Cuyler and San Miguel we watched two giant blue whales. The first blue whale was being escorted by a cadre of Dall’s porpoise. This was indeed a rare treat.
