Common Dolphins were the star of The Pacific this morning! We traveled out to the continental shelf and found an enormous stretch of them. Although we estimated a pod size of ~500 individuals, we noticed a wide extension of them in all directions. There easily could have been a scattered mega-pod off the coast of La Jolla today! Both Long-Beaked AND Short-Beaked Common Dolphins were seen leaping along the boat and body slamming in all directions! Tiny, young calves were also an exciting treat for us today, as we spotted numerous cow-calf pairs..newborns included! As a bonus, we briefly passed by a Mola Mola (Ocean Sunfish) as we observed the dolphins. The visibility was superb today and we expect some fair conditions tomorrow! we’ll see you on the water, whale watchers!
