I wanted to jump in and write a blog this week because I recently got confirmation that a mystery whale I spotted a few YEARS ago was a…of course you have to read on to find out!

Our First Few Weeks on the Water of 2013 | Kera  buttonLink

Our First Few Weeks on the Water of 2013

They started just like 2012…with orcas!

I would say 2012 was one of the best years on the water for me. Why? Because I FINALLY saw orca whales in our waters off of Long Beach with the first time being January 2, 2012 to be exact. A day I will never forget.

Where Are The Blue Whales?!? HERE!

This year has had a little bit of a slow start with the blue whales. Normally June is when they start to trickle in and by mid-July our sightings have increased. This year has been a little different. The blue whales moved around California before stopping off here in Long Beach, but now they’re here! And not just a couple! Read on to find out what our last week has been like.

It’s Time For Big Blue!

On June 15 we officially ended gray whale season and switched over to blue whale watching. That means longer trips and slightly different trip times. The switch to a longer trip has already started paying off as we’ve had a handful of blue whale sightings already!

The Summer Interns Have Arrived! | Kera  buttonLink

The Summer Interns Have Arrived!

And we’re just waiting on the blues to arrive too!

Three times a year I go through many applications trying to figure out how I’m going to decide which interns to bring on for out Photo ID internship. It’s no easy task and I can tell you there are MANY college students and graduates that truly care about the Earth. As I have to do each time, I’ve narrowed it down to four interns that have just joined the Aquarium team to help protect blue whales. Read on to meet the new interns and find out what their summer will look like!

Orcas Gave Us a Once in a Lifetime Sight!

And I'd like to introduce a new voice to the whale watching blogs

There’s been quite a bit of hype in Long Beach around this year’s whale watching season and for good reason! We’ve had so many sightings of gray whales and orcas down here it’s unbelievable. Orcas are normally a very rare occurrence but have been making frequent appearances beginning in January. On May 9, the orcas gave us a once-in-a-lifetime sight. Read on to find out what our last two weeks have looked like on the water.

It’s Official! We’ve Had Our First Blue Whale Sighting for 2012!

We’ve been hearing over the last month that a blue whale would pop up in one area for a day or so, and then a couple of days later they’re somewhere else. At one point there were even five recorded feeding on some krill. Now it’s our turn! We had our first blue whale sightings just this last week! And to top it off, orcas AGAIN!
