Whale Watching:August 28th

On this mornings whale watching trip, we were about a mile out when we came across a feeding frenzy. There were Sea Lions, Pelicans, Cormorants, and Common Dolphins surrounding and feeding on the bait ball. It was super exciting, especially because the Common Dolphins rode our bow wakes. We continued to search for the whales after coming across the feeding frenzy. The captain saw whales in the distance, but unfortunately they were elusive. While heading in, a pod of Dalls Porpoises came up to the boat and rode the bow wakes for a good ten to fifteen minutes. Still a great trip overall.
