With our senior citizen sea otter a target pole can be a quite comforting focus point during a training session.

We’ve had a great couple weeks of sightings and even had some great minke whale sightings. Normally we call them “stinky minkes” because of their elusive behavior. But these past few sightings have shown our guests how beautiful they can be.

We’ve had a fun couple of weeks for September, we’ve seen lots of dolphins, some whales, another blue whale, and the rare brown booby bird! Yes their name is kind of goofy, but these are a beautiful group of birds.

Harpo and his sea lion selfie stick had a Drop-the-Mic moment this summer. Or in this case a Drop-the-GoPro moment. I mean quite literally.

We finally found another blue whale! Our photo ID staff and Harbor Breeze took some really nice photos of this whale. There have also been lots of common dolphins, ocean sunfish, a sneaky minke, and we have witnessed a few feeding frenzies.

Hello whale watch friends! It’s been a little quiet for blue whales, but we’ve seen some amazing stuff on the water. Chief the humpback whale has been in town for the past few days, we spotted Bryde’s whales, minke whales, tons of birds feeding, thousands of dolphins, and even a scalloped hammerhead shark!

It’s a great tip that saves money and helps the environment so Harpo the sea lion and I decided to get the word out about the Aquarium of the Pacific’s water bottle filling stations.

It’s been a little quieter out on the water than we would have expected, but that doesn’t mean we haven’t seen any cetaceans. There have been some sightings of humpbacks and lots of dolphins hanging around the area. Even a rare sighting of a sei whale!

Hello everyone! It’s been a lovely couple of weeks on the water. There have been sightings of our seasonal blue whales, the fin whales, a lot of sightings of humpback whales, and 2 sightings of the Risso’s dolphins. I hope you’ve been out on the water with us, but if not you can catch up with the blog today.

While Harpo the sea lion takes selfies for fun, Shelby the harbor seal has a more important purpose for her selfie. Her purpose is for a porpoise. The critically endangered Vaquita.
