1989--Down in Baja. We were at Todo Santos, hanging with some boys from San Francisco-Out on the bay these big black boosters would come rising up. We probably saw about 40 that day. A really fabulous experience.
As usual no photos
Did you get the Orca shot from dry land, or were you on the water?
I saw a Gray Whale a couple weeks ago off Yaquina Head in Oregon - I heard it spout first, which is what got my attention. I got "pictures" too, but they just look like a disturbance on the surface unless you know what you're looking at.
That was only the second time in my life I'd seen a whale. The first time was last year when I saw a pod of Orcas off Cattle Point / San Juan Island.
