Wow!!! What a spectacular day of cetaceans and wonder! This was one jam-packed day, a gray whale extravaganza in all its glory. Our full day was spent with two 2.5-hour panga trips in search of gray whales and boy oh boy did we search for, find, and for many of us, touch whales today. It was truly an incredible honor to simply be welcomed into their habitat, let alone to witness their boisterous behavior; spy-hopping, rolling, and the occasional breach, while also getting the chance to reach out to give them a scratch. And in Kimberly Wood’s experience, also to snatch off an amphipod (whale lice) to bring aboard and show our guests under the microscope. Wow! How lucky are we to be here?!
