Just Under the Surface | Julien  buttonLink

Just Under the Surface

Happy October everybody! This month has been flying by and even though we have ended our blue whale tours we are still seeing them! That’s right, the blues are still here and they are not the only stars of the show lately. Humpback whales, several at a time, have been sighted, feeding and being very curious with our boats and our guests on-board.

The Blues Continue to Amaze!

But What About the Dolphins?

The end of August has been pretty amazing with blue whale sightings every day! Along with the blue whales giving us great shows out there, minke whales and more humpbacks have been sighted too. These are baleen whales that have made themselves the stars of the shows, but what about the pre-show entertainment?

Pinniped Encounters at the Aquarium of the Pacific

Up close and personal with a sea lion or seal.

Although Parker the sea lion is the star of the popular pinniped encounters at the Aquarium of the Pacific he is not the only animal ambassador from the seal and sea lion exhibit. His understudies, Harpo the sea lion and Shelby the harbor seal are also ready to meet and greet aquarium guests. Each animal brings their own unique style and personality to the session.
