Skies were over cast and seas were calm as we found ourselves between storms today, “The Ides of March.” Great conditions allowed us to “settle our debts” with 5 gray whales (more in the distance) and 1000 long-beaked common dolphins.
Captain Colton and the crew of the Condor Express watched all 5 whales as they migrated north together as a group. As you might expect with such a nice pod, tail flukes were common and practically non-stop. We watched from a respectful distance for nearly an hour before moving offshore.
Several miles south of our whale encounter a large herd of dolphins located the boat and interacted with our whale (and dolphin) watchers. These playful cetaceans also spent a lot of time surfing our bow, side and stern waves.
You never know what Mother Nature has in store.
