Friday May 12,2017 we had a calm, flat sea. A pod of common dolphins came up to the boat for some bow riding once we reached deeper water. We encountered many Mola mola(ocean sunfish) accompanied by their prey, Velella velella(by-the-wind sailors). We then were lucky enough to see a grey whale mother and calf uncharacteristically about 7 miles offshore(That’s far off shore for them!) A pod of dolphins came stampeding across our path while we were checking out these grey whales and then instantaneously switched direction and continued stampeding North. This was quite a remarkable day!
