We expected a roller coaster ride on The Pacific this morning but instead, we exited the jetties to find much calmer conditions! It looks like the swell is finally beginning to lay down again. The great visibility we had made it easy to spot a large group of ~400 Common Dolphins! The pod was densely packed together and didn’t hesitate to interact with the boat as we approached them. Calves were seen swimming along with their mothers and a few instances of courtship behavior were noted within close proximity to our boat. Located roughly 1/4 of a mile from the pod, a single Mola Mola was resting, upside-down, at the surface! We were able to slowly pass by it and get a great look at the largest bony fish on the planet without causing it to sink deeper. A few California Sea Lions also made an appearance inside Mission Bay, right next to our slip on the dock! With the sea state improving drastically, we wish we had a second trip today! Although we will be offline tomorrow, your SDWW crew will be back on the water on Tuesday. See you on the water, whale watchers!
