Sightings Report for May 16th 2018

Happy Hump Day!! In keeping with the theme we encountered Humpback whales all day. With clear skies and calm winds our captains couldn't wait to leave the docks!!!

The humpback whales are beginning to arrive for the summer to feed on the small zooplankton. They migrate here from Hawaii and Mexico where they breed and calf in the tropical waters.

A stop by Race Rocks Ecological park is always a hit! A popular haul out site for local pinnipeds, including, California and Steller Sea Lions and Harbor Seals. They can be heard barking at each other while competing for space on the rocks. 

~ Stay tuned for whats next!
