Message from observers: One whale breached three times, and another whale did a head lunge. Two sightings rolled; we saw a pectoral flipper on one sighting of a pair of whales that were almost three miles offshore. One sighting was close enough to hear the blows. We had trouble tracking three sightings. Gray whales fluked during fourteen of thirty-six sightings. We also spotted a FIN WHALE, COMMON DOLPHIN, BOTTLENOSE DOLPHIN, and PACIFIC WHITE-SIDED DOLPHIN.
