Orcas and Humpback Whales feeding in Monterey Bay!

Oct. 7th: 4 Orcas! Aurora’s pod again. Lunge-feeding Humpback Whales and one big breach from a calf.  10+ Humpback Whales in total!

Oct. 4th: We found Humpback Whales! Of course, the California Sea Lions were close by and seabirds too.  We also saw a large gathering of Sea Otters.

Oct. 3rd: Humpback Whales within 2 miles of the Santa Cruz harbor and hundreds of porpoising California Sea Lions. 

Oct. 2nd:  15+ Humpback Whales and hundreds of California Sea Lions!

Oct. 1st:   Humpback Whales breached, Red-necked Phalarope, Harbor Seal and an Osprey! 

Sept. 30th:  5 ORCAS! Aurora, her 3 offspring, and adult male Jimmy who frequently travels with Aurora and her family! Aurora is the daughter of Star (has her own pod with the rest of her offspring), and her three children are Andi (female, 11), Dipper (unknown, 9), and Eclipse (male, 1). Other boats reported that the Orcas had hunted a seal or sea lion before we arrived! We were watching them socialize and feed when out of nowhere 10+ Humpback Whales charged in to harass them out of the area! The Humpback Whales were charging, trumpeting, tail and head slapping as they attempted to get the Orcas to flee!
