Location: At sea en route from Guadalupe Island to Ensenada, Mexico
Comments: The conditions at sea are fantastic today. It has been absolutely calm since we left Guadalupe Island yesterday evening en route to Ensenada, Mexico. The seas are so flat that it is like we are still in the harbour. Beautiful. We just finished drifting with a loose pod of blue whales off Ensenada. I’m pretty sure that one of them came over to check us out – there we were drifting along with the engines out of gear when an enormous one (and these guys really are ENORMOUS) surfaced and blew 50ft off the side of the boat. He surprised the heck out of all of us. It was great!! Today is a wrap on the Light and Motion and Backscatter sponsored HD Odyssey (high definition video). Our guests got some great footage of the Guadalupe great white sharks and I was blown away by the quality of the videos that were presented last night.
Weather: Flat calm, clear, temperatures in the high 60’s.
Water: Water temp and visibility unknown.
