Enjoying the New Sea Otter Exhibit | Hugh  buttonLink

Enjoying the New Sea Otter Exhibit

If you haven’t been to the Aquarium of the Pacific in a while this summer may be a good time for a visit. The new and improved otter exhibit is quite stunning to witness in person.  It actually gives you the feel of being out on the coast of Central California in the aquatic habitat of Enhydra lutris, the sea otter.

ADVENTURES IN OTTER SPACE PART THREE | Hugh  buttonLink

ADVENTURES IN OTTER SPACE PART THREE

Having helped care for the orphan sea otter Maggie since the night she arrived at the Aquarium of the Pacific I learned a lot about her personality and a lot about sea otters in general. And the furball also learned a few things herself when she was introduced to the other sea otters of the Aquarium. Like how to use her armpits as pockets.

And the blues seem to be right on cue

We officially switch to Blue Whale Watch starting Friday, June 11, 2010. It looks like the blues will be showing up right in time. In the last couple of weeks the blues have started to pop up. I saw my first blue whale last week and man was she a beauty!

ADVENTURES IN OTTER SPACE PART TWO

While caring for the orphan pup I discovered that not only are sea otters cute, they also have musical and pick-pocketing talents. Make sure you check out the video of Maggie banging her shells on the deck with a musical back-beat and the self portrait photo she took of herself with a stolen camera.

Killer Whales Finally Make Their Debut for the Year! | Kera  buttonLink

Killer Whales Finally Make Their Debut for the Year!

They were spotted twice in less than two weeks

Killer whales, also known as orcas, pop up here in Long Beach every so often. Normally they’re here a couple times a year, usually in winter. This year I was a little sad that we hadn’t seen any during gray whale season, but it looks like some of the pods made their way down here. We’ve seen orcas two times in the last month!

There’s More Than Just Blue Whales Around the Corner | Kera  buttonLink

There’s More Than Just Blue Whales Around the Corner

And we can see them now!

Besides blue whale season being right around the corner, there’s also another treat in store for us that goes right along with the whales. That treat is the offshore bottlenose dolphins. Although we see dolphins all year long, we tend to see more of the offshore bottlenose during our Dolphin and Sea Life cruises and as we head off shore to find the blues. Read on to find out what they do that is so special!
