Sightings from San Francisco Whale Tours vessel Kitty Kat

8am:

On our first trip of the day we started west in search of whales. A few miles west of the Golden Gate Strait, we started to see anchovies boiling at the surface. Then we found one humpback.

It showed a couple of flukes and was moving around a lot.

It was very sunny on this trip. We also spotted several jaegers, harbor seals and harbor porpoises.

Our second trip was still sunny, with slightly larger seas. We headed west again and found a different humpback close to shipping lane buoys 7 and 8.

It showed a few flukes and approached us a couple of times.

We also spotted jaegers, harbor seals, and porpoises.

It was very windy by our last trip. We headed all the way out to the end of the shipping lane, but did not find any whales.
