Location: At sea, en route from Guadalupe Island to Ensenada, Mexico.
Comments: We are on our way back to Ensenada for a hurried turnaround to head back out to Guadalupe Island and the great white sharks! The winds finally calmed down yesterday afternoon and a couple of white sharks came by the back of the Nautilus Explorer. We have our fingers crossed these were the only and last windy days of our Guadalupe ’06 season. Just had a couple of blue whales off the bow as well as a large pod of hundreds of Pacific white-sided dolphins!
Weather: Scattered clouds with a 4 – 6ft sea and 15 knot winds from the northwest. It is a very pleasant day to be at sea.
Water: water visibility and temperature unknown.
