June is shaping up nicely with quite the variety of whale sightings aboard East Meets West Excursions, Newport Beach – Humpback whales, Blue whales, Fin whales and Minke whales! Blue whales and humpback whales continue to be our focus. Large volume of anchovies have brought in humpback whales and lots of dolphins with pods of 500+ being common. Blue whales have been traveling a lot and one area has been holding a few blues and a fin whale foraging on krill. I think we will be seeing more humpback whales with the strong sign of anchovy spread all over, as well as more giant blue whales. Our local humpback whale has been making its rounds and loves to throw in some spectacular surface behaviors. Even seeing breaching minke whales the past 2 days. Lots of fun!
