It was Dolphin Day on the Privateer! Today’s guests were thrilled to see many pods of dolphins on both cruises. The morning cruise had great looks at ~40 common dolphins feeding out in deeper water. On the way back in guests were pleasantly surprised to see a small pod of ~7 Pacific white-sided dolphins.

The afternoon cruise came across many pods of common dolphins along with a fantastic mixed species group of Common dolphins, California sea lions, and several species of seabirds. The blue-green water was teeming with bait balls of anchovies that these predatory species were feeding on.

You never know what you’re going to see out here in the Pacfic ocean…so we hope to see you soon!
