Feb 27, 2018 - National Geographic Sea Lion
This morning began with an overcast sky, gentle breezes and sprinkles of rain. We were out early in our rubber boats in search of gray whales…and we found them in good numbers. There were single whales cavorting with each other, mothers traveling with their calves, whales spy hopping (poking their heads straight up out of the water and holding it there), breaching (officially; leaping 2/3s of their body out of the water and doing a half twist before slamming back down with a huge splash), and just logging quietly on the surface (breathing out while sinking slightly and breathing in and rising slightly without moving forward).While we were out we had the unusually experience of real rain in Baja this time of year. Despite the wet our spirits were not dampened as we thoroughly enjoyed the experience of being in such close contact with these leviathans of the sea.
