We had a fun time cruising out in the Pacific. Passengers enjoyed the salty spray and fun Common dolphin activity! We observed 3 pods of Long-beaked Common dolphins totaling ~200 individuals in total. Lots of feeding activity seen along the drop-off! On our way back in, we encountered a huge ~1/4 mile swarm of pelagic red crab in shallow water. Blue whales have been known to feed on those crustaceans, so crossing fingers that that means Blues are coming in!
