Sightings from San Francisco Whale Tours vessel Kitty Kat
On our first trip of the day we headed out to the end of the Golden Gate Strait where we last saw whales. After a few minutes we spotted the first spouts a little northwest of Point Bonita.
There were two humpback whales traveling together - potentially a mother and juvenile. The two surfaced together and stayed close to each other the entire time we observed them.
There was some bird activity and we noticed anchovies on the fish finder. We saw a few fluke dives from the animals as well.
On our next trip we found the same animals close to Mile Rock.
On this trip the whales kept their distance from us. Near the end of the trip they came about 100 yards off our starboard side.
We saw a few shallower fluke dives from these animals.
