Happy hump day! Today’s grey skies matched our friendly Grey whale friends! The ocean was a bit quiet for most of our morning trip. We headed out west and then southbound towards the 9-mile bank. We thought all of the cetaceans were taking a day off today, but just in the nick of time, we found all the marine mammals hanging out close to Point Loma! We found a scattered pod of ~100 long-beaked common dolphins. We also found 2 grey whales, who were traveling side by side. We saw their flukes come up several times. We also witnessed a super cool feeding frenzy!

For our sunset trip, we headed back south and encountered the same 2 grey whales not far from the coast, this time they were closer to Cabrillo National Monument. On our way back to Mission Bay, we spotted a single spout far out in the distance however, we were rushing against daylight and the incoming storm. Looking forward to the rest of Grey whale season this winter!
