Rare Encounter: Gray Baby Orca!

Sept. 15, 2019 – Orca Alert!

On the Ultimate 8 hour Whale Watch departing from Dana Wharf in Dana Point, CA, passengers aboard the Ocean Adventures Catamaran got a rare treat as described by our guide Alisa Schulman-Janiger “We watched 11 Bigg’s transients, including CA216s with CA216C and her pale gray newborn CA216C1, between Catalina Island and Dana Pt. We also saw a fin whale, offshore bottlenose, and common dolphin.” Huge thanks to Capt. Todd Mansur and spotter plane pilot Carl Sparounis! (CA Killer Whale Project)! Drone pilot was Matt Larmand.
