Sightings from San Francisco Whale Tours vessel Kitty Kat


On this trip we headed out into foggy conditions and found one humpback whale near the shipping lane. We were able to identify this whale as Akula.

We didn’t see any flukes from Akula, but we were able to identify her from her dorsal fin.

Akula was moving south over the course of the trip. She kept her distance from the boat.

We also saw some sea lions on the shipping lane buoys.
