Sightings Report: June 12, 2018

All sightings from San Francisco Whale Tours vessel Happy Days


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. 



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.
