One Gray Whale and Goodyear Blimp Flyover

February 7th 2020

1 North Bound 0 South Bound 1 Sightings 5.75 hrs

One north bound gray whale sighting on a beautiful, clear and calm unseasonably warm, 78 degree spring like winter day. Small pod of 5-7 active Dolphins including an interactive mom and calf traveling with 2-3 escort dolphins at all times. Behaviors included, tail lobbing, foraging, with bursts of stampeding back and forth in all directions. Lots of visible blows and splashing. The Goodyear blimp made a short flyover along the coast before heading back over land.
