A very rare morning on the Privateer–just a handful of cetaceans spotted– six inshore bottlenose dolphins in the Mission Bay channel. Weather was beautiful, seas calm, quite a few bait balls consisting of very small anchovies and lots of elegant terns and shearwaters were seen, but the other cetaceans were nowhere to be found. In nature things change quickly, so definitely optimistic baleen whales and many more dolphins will be seen soon. We had great guests on board today, and they all received a pass to come out with us again.
