Had a bad case of the Monday blues today….and we and our guests loved it. A blue whale on the morning cruise decided to check us out--you can see Capt. Steve in the photo enjoying the sight. We also saw about 330 common dolphins and a small school of mola mola's. The...

WARNING: If you do not like baby dolphins, read no further! Despite some wacky weather (thunder and lightning during July in San Diego?!??), we still had two incredible trips today. In the morning we found a pod of six Risso's dolphins, one of our more unusual...

Another day with the blues. Blue whales that is. We had about 7 total for both trips today. They seem to be staying out on the 50 fathom curve. We also had assorted pods of common dolphins , and 3 different groupings of mola mola (ocean sunfish). Today was awesome!

Can you ever have too much of a good thing? We sure don't think so on the Privateer, because today we had too many blue whales to count but nobody is complaining! Both of our trips saw more whales than we knew what to do with - at least 15 per trip - and a sprinkling...
