We got to see the GLOW today! Blue skies have returned and there is NOTHING in this world like witnessing a blue whale on a beautiful sunny day out at sea! We had to run all the to the very end of our range on our first trip to hang out with two blue whales. The whole run out to 12 miles off shore we were accompanied by long beaked common dolphins, and a pod of bottlenose! Our second trip was a bit closer to shore with a whale hanging out just off of the drop off. But as we sat and spent time admiring the gorgeous sapphire glow – in the distance we sighted a massive pod of short beaked common dolphins stampeding into the blue sp we left to go experience their exuberance.

On our sunset trip, we headed out towards the 9-mile bank. We encountered a pod of ~25 long-beaked common dolphins. They were surfing in our wake and coming up to our bow. Once we were about 12 miles offshore, we encountered another pod of ~150 long-beaked common dolphins. We didn’t hang out with them for too long because we got distracted by a significant spout! We were surrounded by two different species of Baleen whale. We hung out with a Common Minke whale, one of the smallest rorqual whales. We also saw a Bryde’s whale which is a subtropical whale we see from time to time when the water temperature is at its warmest. We enjoyed the most spectacular sunset on our way back towards Mission Bay! Please come out for some salt water therapy!
