They have had some nice sightings at Oceanside Adventures whale watching recently so we decided to check it out and try our luck.
We went out with our friend Renee on Saturday. It was a weird day. We forgot to bring our discount tickets and got nailed. It was much choppier than usual after a smooth morning cruise. Renee didn't feed the right meter and got a ticket. Turned into an expensive day.
Not a whale in sight, broke our winning streak.
But we did run into a huge pod of common dolphin, which funny enough are actually the least common dolphin species in the world. There were a lot of young dolphins in the group, much smaller sized bodies than usual. I estimate there were somewhere between 800 and 1200 dolphin in this group.
