Cuvier's Beaked Whales, the deepest diving marine mammal!

Very interesting day! Started with a large pod of Risso's Dolphins, then came across a single southbound Gray Whale with a very white fluke. While waiting for the Gray to resurface we spotted Cuvier's Beaked Whales off in the distance, they dove before we had a chance to get too close though. We also saw a juvenile Short-Tailed Albatross that's been in the area. Finally, we found a pod of sleepy Risso's Dolphins on the way back in.

2/12/22 Saturday: Another gorgeous day on Monterey Bay!  Santa Cruz Whale Watching was able to see 3 Gray Whales and a dozen Risso’s dolphins.

2/11/22 Friday: What a beautiful, warm, sunny day with calm waters on Friday's Whale Watching trip.  We were quickly greeted by a single Northbound Gray Whale.  Then we found a group of about six Southbound Gray Whales. They fluked and dove.  Lots of great views of diving tails and arching backs.
