Amazing humpback whale showings and much more!

admin No Comments

Great Fall mixture of sightings including humpback whales, minke whales, and common dolphins as we transition into our Winter gray whale migration. Our groups aboard East Meets West Excursions, Newport Beach, enjoyed epic dolphin and whale watching tours – breaching, lobtailing, fluking, kelping, and lunge feeding were a few highlights displayed by humpback whales. Amazing pods of common dolphins from 100-1000 individuals in each pod swimming and interacting with our new boat, close enough to pet. Gray whales to show any day now.

Whale watching – mother and calf

admin No Comments

Epic afternoon aboard East Meets West Excursions, Newport Beach. No whales have been sighted by the fleet in 4 or 5 days. We took a risk and ran offshore to a new area out of range for most. It took some searching but it paid off. We found two humpback whales, a mother and her calf. Flat calm conditions, an adventurous group aboard, and watching and mother humpback and her calf in their natural element was amazing! Thank you Alex, @alexandraseza for the photographs – more to come.
