Friday 4/30 – Sunday 5/2 Santa Cruz Whale Watching

Humpbacks are finally showing up in big numbers. Yesterday we had 3, and the day before we watched 4-5 whales. On Friday we followed 2 different pairs, but could see additional 10+ spouts all around the Bay. Saturday, we saw 2 bottlenose dolphins. Lots of otters all weekend. Sharks are popping up too, pretty close to shore, so hard to get to, but conditions have been excellent and we’ve seen a few, including a 13ft female yesterday!
