We had a foggy morning, but that didn’t stop us from finding four gray whales – three northbound and one undetermined. The first one that we found was very close to shore in just 70 feet of water. As it went down for a dive, it displayed some kelp from the nearby forest trailing behind on its tail. We found three other whales farther offshore and a teeny, tiny sea lion pup that followed our boat for several minutes.
We are expected to have a heat wave for the next week with temperatures in the 80’s. I can’t think of anywhere better to be than on the Pacific looking for whales!
