The first day of spring brought more flat, calm seas. Skies were overcast with a few scattered showers. Total sightings for today’s single, 12-noon trip included: 1 fin whale and 1 gray whale.
Captain Dave and the crew of the Condor Express found all the action about 2 miles out from Santa Barbara Harbor. The first encounter was with a juvenile gray whale. This whale spent some nice time on the surface and everyone had good looks. The second whale was a huge fin whale. This species is the second-longest of all the whales and are second cousins to the giant blues. The fin whale sighting was also very good and a treat to see.
You never know what Mother Nature has in store.
