Watching Whales in San Diego!

Watching for whales

Last Saturday gave us a break in the previously rainy weather, and was mostly clear and not too chilly.

The seas were a bit rough, but everyone stayed dry as we headed out looking for gray whales just off Point Loma.

We were not disappointed, as less than an hour into the voyage we spotted three whales only a few miles offshore. We stayed with them for quite awhile and got lots of great pictures.

whale breathing

Here you can see much of the back of one of these amazing mammals as he / she (I can’t tell!) blows air and some water vapor, getting ready to take another breath and dive again.

This is a very nice picture with the San Diego skyline visible behind the whale.

Shortly into the viewing of the first three whales, two more joined the group and traveled in the same direction.

Here are a few more pictures from this outing:

whale tail

This whale is preparing to dive a bit deeper into the water. How do we know this? Well, prior to a deeper dive the whales arch their back more and often show their tail as they angle more steeply down.

whale back

Here’s another whale thoughtfully positioning herself so as to frame downtown in the background.

The wind was not real cooperative during the whale watching portion of the tour, but we were able to spend some quiet time sailing on the way back in.
