Gray whales are extremely curious by nature, and Beacon displayed that today. He would surface close to the boat and once he even swam under us. Although they are curious, we must always leave the decision to approach the boat up to them. In the picture above you can see as Beacon surface to check us out on the boat. You can spot his eye if you follow the mouth line.
Yesterday, although there were no whales, we did come have a very rare encounter, we spotted an elephant seal! We are hoping that seas remain calm and the whales become frequent! Stayed tuned to hear more about whale encounters!
