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.
