After leaving San Diego Bay, the whale watching group came across a large group of about 200 common dolphins mixed some Pacific White-sided dolphins. There was also a single Gray Whale heading south along with spouts and tail flukes that we were able to follow. In the afternoon we spotted a Gray Whale that breached 6 times. We got great views all around.

On the last day of the year we spotted 6 Gray Whales! It is evident that the Gray Whale's southward migration is in full swing, and what a treat it was to see that with our tours.  All our guests also enjoyed seeing a dozen Pacific White sided Dolphins enjoying their evening in the bay.

Kicking off the new year with some great sightings! On that very foggy morning we were followed by 150 Common Dolphins alongside the boat. Our tour came upon a Gray Whale that have a show of surfacing and fluking to perfection! We went our a little farther and came across 3 southbound Gray Whales with possible pregnant females. Lastly we got a group of 5 Gray Whales that lifted their flukes above the water many times!

Immediately after leaving San Diego Bay we encountered a group of Common Dolphins that enjoyed swimming alongside the boat. Then we saw a group of 4 southbound Gray Whales swimming very slowly. The view of these creatures was spectacular. The rest of winter is going to be a great treat!
