Sightings from San Francisco Whale Tours vessel Kitty Kat
The sea conditions were perfect as we headed out in search of whales. We started off north, noting key signs like the presence of birds and fishermen. We found a humpback whale in this area.
The whale did several lunge feeds within 100 yards of the boat.
The birds followed the whale around, plucking anchovies from the surface.
It was slightly windier as we headed out on our second trip of the day. We found another humpback in the same area.
It showed its flukes, but was travelling and stayed at a distance from us.
