It’s Time For Big Blue! | Kera  buttonLink

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! | Kera  buttonLink

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! | Kera  buttonLink

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!

You Know It’s Springtime on the Water When… | Kera  buttonLink

You Know It’s Springtime on the Water When…

Springtime is always an interesting time on the whale watching boats. It can be some of the most active months. For example, it’s getting to the end of gray whale season, this is a time when some humpbacks move through the area, and some of the first blue whales typically show up. Read on to find out how much of this we’ve seen so far!

The First Blue Whales are Right on Time!

And that't not the only exciting news

Since I’ve been out on the water and working with the Aquarium of the Pacific, one thing that I’ve noticed about blue whales is that the first time we seem them is right around the end of winter/early spring. This year it seems they’re right on time!

Orcas…AGAIN! | Kera  buttonLink

Orcas…AGAIN!

This has truly been an amazing whale watch season, and there are still so many months to go! Our interns for the spring arrived this week and on Tuesday we went out on the boats for a training. When I was walking down to the boat, Captain Chris asked me if I had my camera (which of course I always do), and he said “Good! It’s your lucky day!” Read on to find out what made this day extra special!

Watching Breaching Whales From The Cliffs

Breaching Gray Whales and Aggressive Looking Orcas Make for Exciting Whale Watching from Point Vicente

There are few places in the world where you can stand in one spot and have the potential of spotting two dozen species of marine mammals. One of those places is in the Aquarium of the Pacific own backyard. The cliffs of the Palos Verdes Peninsula just a few miles up the coast offers a unique vantage point for sighting marine mammals without having the threat of sea sickness.
