Message from the observers: 2 northbound GRAY WHALES - including 1 calf - plus a HUMPBACK and FIN WHALE! Our GRAY WHALE cow/calf pair passed close to shore, just before 5 p.m. We tracked a HUMPBACK WHALE and a FIN WHALE this afternoon. The FIN WHALE came within a mile of shore, did a bubble blast, changed directions, and was likely feeding. We also spotted COMMON DOLPHIN (one group was feeding with sea lions and birds), BOTTLENOSE DOLPHIN, and about six RISSO'S DOLPHIN.
