Rare encounter with 40-50 offshore killer whales Wednesday, November 30, off Newport Beach. Multiple pods of 3-8 with quite a few calfs swam through our waters off of Orange County.
Our dolphin and whale watching tours have enjoyed a diverse mixture of sightseeing possibilities and opportunities of late. Gray whales have begun their southbound migration to breed in the lagoons off of Baja California. Humpbacks whales continue to show offshore. And some of the best common dolphin pods of the season, even a mega pod of 1000-1500, along with a nice winter time mix of risso’s dolphins and pacific white sided dolphins.
