We had a great day with smooth sea conditions! It was the calm before the storm! We enjoyed three trips with some wildlife sighted. We started off sighting ~60 Offshore bottlenose dolphins only 3-miles from shore! They were very playful and curious with the Privateer. We even had a guest appearance from Patches, the leucistic bottlenose dolphin that frequents SoCal. We set out to the drop off and hung out with a trio of Gray whales! For the afternoon tour, we zoomed out to the NW, off La Jolla. Along the way, we were pleasantly surprised by about 10 Pacific white-sided dolphins! A juvenile sea lion was seen leaping all around them. Close to 13-miles from Mission Bay we found the same pod of 3 Gray whales continuing to the NW. The dramatic dark clouds closed in on us this evening, but we got lucky and sighted ~50 Offshore bottlenose dolphins headed north. The accompanied us as they rode the bow and surfed our wake. On our way in, we sighted a big puffy spout, but the whale gave us the slip!
 
We are offline tomorrow, as the seas are going to be too rough. We will see you again soon!
