Gray whales are passing south, visiting with dolphins – January 16-18

Monday, January 18, 2021

Oh man we just had the most epic day!!

We have pacific white sided dolphins racing us at 12 knots right now!

So, we got out to the “gray whale highway”, saw scattered spouts...

Ended up with a very affection pair of grays. They stopped and snuggled with each other for at least 30 minutes. Risso’s dolphins swam up and were interacting... dolphins seem to encourage social bonding and even mating amongst gray whales.

Then the white sided dolphins popped up and mixed in with the Risso’s and started surfing all over the whales!

 

Last two days about 10 whales within sight around Monterey Bay

Saturday – 2 gray whales, Stellar sea lion (the big guy!)

Sunday – 6 + gray whales, sea otters in the kelp beds and for the birders, black footed albatross.
