Another exciting day full of various types of cetaceans found off our pacific coast! We had excellent sea conditions during our afternoon trip! We encountered several scattered pods of long-beaked common dolphins about ~230 LB common dolphins in total were sighted throughout the trip! We also sighted a large and active pod of ~250 short-beaked common dolphins. The third species of toothed whales comprised of ~80 offshore bottlenose dolphins. It was a fairly close-knit and large pod including several cow/calf pairs!
We experienced great sea conditions during our sunset trip as whale! We travelled southwest towards Mexico and encountered a massive pod of ~800 long-beaked common dolphins! We hung out with them for most of our trip as there were bow-riding, surfing in our boat’s wake and porpoising in and out of the water. There’s never a dull moment out on the big blue ocean! We hope you come aboard with us soon.
