Resident humpbacks stay with us

2-humpbacks-1-fluke-1-back

Today’s trip was pretty amazing as the weather got just a little nicer and the sun shown a little brighter. We encountered a 1/2 dozen wintertime resident juvenile humpback whales frolicking out front of Santa Cruz on the west side of the Soquel Hole.  We also saw 4 adult transient humpback whales cruising through on their way down to Mexico. Also enjoyed were California Sea Lions, Otters and Harbor Seals.
