We’ve had really productive whale watches the past couple of weeks, lots of dolphins (including my favorite, the Pacific white-sided), fin whales, gray whales, breaching whales, and even a humpback whale. Our new interns are in full swing, taking some amazing photos for you all to explore our local ocean life.
