Sightings from San Francisco Whale Tours vessel Kitty Kat.
On our first trip of the day we had calm, sunny conditions. We found whales several miles west of Stinson Beach.
There were about four whales in the area, which was around 110 feet deep.
We saw lots of activity in this area from birds, fishermen, and whales. There were also anchovies on the fish finder. The whales were lunge feeding and gave a few fluke dives.
From one fluke we were able to identify #38 in our catalog.
We stayed with these animals for about 30 minutes.
By our next trip, the conditions had deteriorated and we had a lot more wind. We returned to the same spot as earlier and found two humpback whales feeding near some small fishing vessels.
