A whole lot of dolphins
Captain Dave took the Condor Express down to the eastern Channel first thing this morning and had a whole lot of long-beaked common dolphins, perhaps 2,000 or so. That is a whole lot of dolphins. Next he ran the Lanes back west to West Point, Santa Cruz Island and located the first of his 3 humpback whales. Continuing west later, the 2 more additional humpback whales were sighted.
Conditions were nice with clear water and sunny skies. A good look at a big fat ocean sunfish (Mola mola) rounded out the day. Certainly the dolphins were among the most spectacular sightings today.
You never know what Mother Nature has in store.
