While Shark Week starts tonight on television, we seem to be having our own Shark Week here in San Diego on the Privateer!
After a thresher shark sighting yesterday, today we spotted a 4-foot hammerhead shark in the morning and an even larger 8-foot hammerhead in the afternoon! In addition to the sharks, we also saw 3 blue whales, 300 common dolphins, and a harbor seal.
Unfortunately we also had a sighting of something much less beneficial for the ocean than our sharks – Fourth of July balloons. We were able to retrieve a few, but not all. There are so many more eco-friendly ways to celebrate special occasions. Please skip the balloons at your next party!
