Super Cetacean Tuesday?!?! Holy moly! We had an incredible trip this morning! Today was the first day back on the water after a week of being offline and it was the BEST! We had sightings from both baleen whales and toothed whales throughout the day! Our first sighting was of a pod of ~15 Pacific white-sided dolphins! They were seen traveling to the south along with a pod of ~75 Common dolphins! Many of them came over to check us out by bow-riding, and surfing in our wake. We ventured out to the deep water shelf in search of more wildlife. Sightings of California sea lions, a couple of elusive Harbor seals, and a variety of seabirds were observed. We pointed our nose back to the coast and got super lucky! We found a single juvenile Gray whale traveling south on its annual migration! The FIRST Gray whale for San Diego Whale Watch this season! We observed it traveling at 5mph, coming up for 3-5 breaths, and going down for 3-min dives as it was in only 100-ft of water. To top it off, it BREACHED SEVEN TIMES! Guests were so excited to see such a rare event! What an awesome way to kick off the Gray whale 2018-2019 season! Hope to see you on the water! -Vanessa
