Why So Many Grays? | Julien  buttonLink

Why So Many Grays?

Like I have been mentioning in the last few blogs, we are counting more southbound whales than ever which raises the question; why? Are there actually greater numbers heading south or are we just seeing greater numbers off the coast during the annual gray whale census?

Grays Galore! | Julien  buttonLink

Grays Galore!

In the last blog I wrote about the killer whale pod, the CA51’s, being back again on the 6th of January, and guess what? They were back the following day on the 7th! So we had TWO days in a row with these whales and were very, very spoiled naturalists. Also, lots and lots of gray whale sightings!

A Killer Holiday Season | Julien  buttonLink

A Killer Holiday Season

There has certainly been quite a buzz around the area about our recent killer whale sightings! As mentioned briefly in the last blog, we did have a sighting last month on November 25th of about seven of the ETP (Eastern Tropical Pacific) killer whales. These are whales that are super rare for our waters from the Mexico and Central America area. After this sighting, which included a lot of great activity, they traveled further north. But that is not where the excitement ended!

Fintastic Fall and Killer Whales! | Julien  buttonLink

Fintastic Fall and Killer Whales!

Fin whales, Killer Whales, and our first Grays of the season!

Hello whale lovers! So much has been going on! As you have been reading in the previous blogs, we have been seeing tons of friendly humpback whales and a few blues.  Even though the humpbacks, and even some blues, have still been around this month, the real show stealers have been the fin whales! It is common for us to see fin whales closer to shore in the fall since they tend to feed further offshore during the summer months. Just a few days ago, we spotted our first gray whale of the season!  Also, meet one of our many amazing naturalists, Jennifer Thompson!

A Very Humpbacky October | Julien  buttonLink

A Very Humpbacky October

Humpbacks galore and blues too!

The blue whales have still been making some cameo appearances, with around 40 sightings, even though the season has ended. Though we are seeing a few blues still perusing krill, the show stealers have continued to be the humpback whales! Just in the month of October, we had a total of twenty four humpback whale sightings with lots of exciting humpback behavior like tail lobbing and breaching.

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.
