Humpback whales get playful today !

6 Humpback whales
35 Risso’s dolphins
3,000+ Common dolphins

Captain Mat reported that the humpback whales were very active. There were numerous full body breaches, and several instances of kelping (whale rolls and plays in drifting giant kelp paddies on the surface). Two whales were very friendly and spent a lot of time looking at the boat and everyone on board. There were outstanding sea conditions and the trip included a visit to the world famous Painted Cave of Santa Cruz Island.
