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!

Now that the holiday crowds have subsided, we have plenty of open reservations this week. Hope to see you all on the boat!
