Whaler's log :: Blue whales feeding...

We saw four blue whales feeding within five miles offshore.  All the passengers, as well as the whale-watch volunteers, were delighted that no matter where they were on the boat they got great views of the blues as they criss-crossed our bow while feeding and showed us their 20-foot tail flukes on their short dives.  That ice-blue glow of the blue whale traveling just beneath the surface is always an awesome sight.  We even saw a large red-orange patch of blue whale poop!
…We headed out to Los Coronados Islands and saw two humpbacks as well as probably 1,000 common dolphins.  Our boat was surrounded by dolphins, many with small calves.
