Whaler's log :: No April Fool's on the Nature Cruise

No foolin' - it was a very summer-like day on Friday;calm seas, warm temperatures and lots of whale. Passengers spotted six gray whales (three of them exhibiting mating behavior), five fin whales (one came very close to the boat for a little people watching), possibly one blue whale....a wonderful day!

Saturday's temperature wasn't as kind, but a troop of Girl Scouts from Las Vegas and several other passengers joined whalers Judy and Diane on the cruise. Passengers saw four or five gray whales and a fin whale, in addition to the usual suspects at Los Coronados Islands....the sea lions, harbor seals and elephant seals, and many sea birds. Some of the passengers were repeat visitors, and plan on doing the Nature Cruise again, as it never fails to delight!
