Spectacular conditions at sea today–and lots of dolphins…on our combined morning and afternoon trips, we saw over 1,000 common, plus a few Pacific White-Sided on each trip. Morning guests also got to observe a couple coastal bottle nose dolphins, and a couple harbor seals. Afternoon guests were in the midst of a feeding frenzy of common dolphins, sea lions, and lots of birds. I included a photo of brants–a mallard-sized goose–many birds are seen off our coast in addition to marine mammals. We did not see a baleen whale today….but there’s tomorrow and every cruise brings different sightings! Hope to see you on board!
