Sightings Report: June 12, 2018

All sightings from San Francisco Whale Tours vessel Happy Days

8am: 

On our first trip we had a thick layer of fog just outside the Golden Gate Strait. We found two humpbacks right at the edge of the fog. 

They showed us a few flukes and seemed to slowly be moving east. 

Eventually they ended up near Baker Beach. We also saw several harbor porpoises and harbor seals.

11am: 

On our next trip the whales were not where we had left them. We searched the strait and eventually found them near Point Bonita. 

The whale was travelling, spouting every 5-7 minutes and taking shallow dives. 

On our way in, we spotted a whale surface very close to a container ship.
