Warm Water Brings Whale-a-palooza to Southern California

by Capt. Dave's Dolphin & Whale Watching Safari 1:45 mins

As warm water from a probable El Niño event moves into Southern California, it brings with it an abundant amount of marine mammals and fish, some of which are rarely seen in the area. Whale watchers aboard Captain Dave’s Dolphin and Whale Watching Safari in Dana Point, California, have delighted in a whale-a-palooza with blue whales, fin whales, humpback whales, minke whales, and extremely rare Bryde’s whales seen in just the last two days! Dolphins too, some in pods numbering over 1,000, seem to be enjoying the abundant food supply made available by the warmer water. Dana Point has the greatest density of dolphins per square mile than anywhere on earth. And large sharks, including rare hammerhead sharks, have been seen on multiple occasions. In this video Dana Point whale watching passengers received an unexpected surprise yesterday and today when they encountered an infrequently seen humpback whale mother and calf. Humpback whales average 40 to 50 feet in length and can weigh up to 40 tons. These gentle giants are well known for their playful behavior and long pectoral flippers which they use for better maneuverability.
