Building a snowman for the sea otters during the Holiday Treats for the Animals festivities at the Aquarium of the Pacific has been a tradition for the husbandry staff since the early years of the facility. Ollie the sea otter has added her own twist to the tradition.

It’s been amazing observing over 8 humpback whales over the past couple of weeks. We’ve also seen tons of dolphins, a few fin whales, and even briefly a blue whale! No pictures of the blue unfortunately, but check out all the amazing humpbacks and see how many you can tell are different.

We’ve had some exciting days on the water the past month. I’m sure many folks saw in the news the report about the orca sighting, we’ve also had Risso’s dolphin sightings, the pleasant surprise of multiple minke whale sightings, and lots of common and bottlenose dolphins. There were even a couple of sightings of blue whales around the beginning of the month.

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.
