Heading out of the Mission Bay Channel, we saw a small pod of bottle nose dolphins….they were much too close to the jetty to get a better look. Out on the open ocean, however, a different story–first a pod of 50 common dolphins, and a bit further out, a megapod of over 1,000 common dolphins. We didn’t forget the blue whales either. Viewed two blue whales–swells were big, but not close together, so the ride was comfortable, but a little difficult to get really good looks at the whales–however, everyone was happy to see these giants at sea.
