Captain Mat used his experiences from yesterday plus his natural keen eyesight to steer the Condor Express through a series of cetacean sightings today. Running back to the northeast Santa Barbara Channel, Mat quickly found 5 humpback whales and 3 Minke whales. Mat says that the Minke whales were, again, very friendly and gave everyone on board some great looks. It is fantastic to find such an abundance of whales close to the mainland, and to have the Minke whales being such willing participants in the human-whale experience.

Conditions were fantastic and at least 800 common dolphins were also seen today.
