Message from the observers: Our sightings today also included a FIN WHALE! One sighting was "extremely" stealthy, another was low profile, and another one came in very close to shore - right below our fence line (see photo). We also spotted a FIN WHALE, COMMON DOLPHIN, PACIFIC WHITE-SIDED DOLPHIN, and BOTTLENOSE DOLPHIN; the bottlenose dolphin fed and milled for half an hour.
