It was a Super Toothed Whale Saturday aboard the Privateer! During the morning trip, we encountered three species of toothed whale! We ventured out into deeper water and found a very spread out pod of ~300 COMMON DOLPHIN! They were pretty mellow, and slowly traveling toward the South. While watching them, all of a sudden a small pod of ~12 RISSO’S DOLPHIN showed up in the mix. They were intermingling and interacting with each other. The Risso’s were also very relaxed and milled in one spot during our entire encounter. We got great looks at their striking coloration and large dorsal fins. We continued on and found a small pod of six PACIFIC WHITE-SIDED DOLPHIN! During the afternoon cruise, we set out to deeper water again and found a very active pod of ~15 PACIFIC WHITE-SIDED DOLPHIN feeding among three CALIFORNIA SEA LIONS and several hundred shearwaters! The feeding frenzy was exciting watch! We continued on toward the North and found a large pod of ~200 COMMON DOLPHIN! These very acrobatic and energetic dolphin were traveling toward the South. We saw leaps and bounds as they rushed to the bow to bow-ride and surf in our wake. On the way back to the dock, we sighted two HARBOR SEALS in a very large kelp paddy! They are too cute to not stop and take a look! To round up the trip, at least three INSHORE BOTTLENOSE DOLPHIN were seen crossing the Mission Bay jetties toward the South. We never know what we will see on our tours, so we hope you’ll join us soon! -Vanessa
