We almost always see seals, dolphins and occasionally whales at a distance, but never right next to the boat. You are so right it was really beautiful, and something I'll remember forever.

That would be cool, and we can stay on the boat, Avalon is cool and so is the Isthmus. I always bring a good bottle of scotch and a cigar for relaxing on the boat after dinner.

Gray Whale Census and Behavior Project

We've got humpbacks out here, and sometimes they jump out of the water making huge splashes. You can see them from the shoreline!
Great link, thanks

I'll ask you, do like to fish for Marlin, Tuna, Dorado, Yellowtail ETC? BTW, what yacht club are you with? My sister and brother in law are Bahia Corinthian members. My brother in law sails professionally for the club and for some private owners. Trans Pac, Ensenada, Newport to Cabo all that crap.

Gunner It's amazing what you get to see when your gliding along the water at 5 knots. Thanks for sharing that.

They were doing circles around us mostly, and I think eating, but when they left they appeared to be heading south.

I have a friend who took a trip down to Guerrero Negro a few years back to go out in the pangas and be with the whales. His photos were amazing, and he could reach out and touch them. When the whale surfaced right next to the boat both myself and my buddy were too startled to snap a photo. Too bad because it would have been a great pic.

JacKOFFroad That's awesome. I took the family last year to Monterey. We went whale watching. The greys were scared off by killer whales. We watched them hunt right next to us for about an hour. Startling for sure haha

California Grey Whales

I took a friend sailing on our clubs Catalina 34' sailboat, Dollfun yesterday. On the way back into Newport Harbor we came across what appeared to be a family of 3 California Grey Whales. One of which surfaced within one foot of our boat which was both amazing and startling. They continued to surface around us about 5 or 6 more times, it was totally amazing to see and I had to share it with my Wrangler friends.
