Dogs and whales evening cruise

Took the family out with the dog for her first boat ride, she did great. It was also my older sons first ocean trip in the new zodiac.

As for the whales there was a ton of activity, must have been at least a dozen humpbacks just a half mile out of the harbor. Also swarms of dolphins, a hundred or more, and little herds of sea lions. My boys were really impressed, this was their first close encounter.

Unfortunately the whales don't pose well for pictures but the boys probably got some good ones of the dolphins right next to the boat.

A lovely after work evening

Jason

Now that sounds a fantastic way to end the day. I bet your kids can't wait for the next trip out!

So much so that we are apparently going out again today and tomorrow and bringing their friends along. Twist my arm.

Where are you launching from? Is the hoist launch near you still in operation, or are you hitting a ramp someplace?

Ramp in Morro Bay. The whales are hanging around just offshore, 2-3 miles from the harbor.

We had the greatest evening. This went on for an hour or more. We just drifted and the whales put on a show all around. We had two surface about 10 yards behind the boat but I missed it

Here's some good video just mind my wife's language.

Hmm no video upload from iphone
