Even if we haven’t seen as many blue whales as we would like the water has been fun and a great way to get away from the heat, we’ve seen the occasional humpback, some blue whales, fin whales, common dolphins every day, and an amazing sighting of a Bryde’s whale cow/calf pair!

Sea Otters Charlie and Brook are two of the original animals at the Aquarium of the Pacific. They were there when the aquarium first opened in 1998. If you’ve ever wondered what these two 21-year-old sea otters looked like back then, check out this video.

There have been lots of dolphins and other sea life spotted on our whale watches, including mola molas.

Our new interns have started working on the whale watches so we’re finally getting some pictures back in to the database to share with you all. It’s been pretty exciting with all of the fin whales, the few humpbacks we’ve seen, dolphins, molas, and of course the blue whales!

There wasn’t a lot of staff, paid and volunteers, back when the Aquarium of the Pacific first opened in June of 1998 so my early volunteer responsibilities included a lot of duties outside the realm of marine mammal husbandry. One of which was hand feeding sharks including one of the aquarium’s charter animal, Fern.
