California Whale Watching in Monterey Bay

On Friday 5th August we went on a half day (morning) whale watching trip in Monterey Bay. A detailed account of our fantastic trip will follow in the holiday trip report on ELBF ( in a week or so.

We were lucky to see 2 Blue and 26 Humpback Whales, 100+ Rissos Dolphins and double figure Northern Right Whale Dolphins, as well as 3 Black Footed Albatross', Cassin's Auklet, Red Necked and Red Phalaropes, Sooty Shearwaters, a probable Pink Footed Shearwater and many Common Murre.

The largest creature to have ever lived on earth, bigger than any dinosaur, the Blue Whale.
