Dear Whale-Loving Friends,
I had the pleasure of crewing on Captain Dave’s Dolphin and Whale Safari today during this beautiful encounter with a Mother humpback whale and calf. Watch the calf do a peduncle throw! The creator of this video suggests that the calf was throwing a tantrum when it lifted the entire lower half of its body and tail out of the water and landed it right on top of mom.

It’s been a truly beautiful gray whale migration season here in Southern California and all along the Pacific Coast of the United States.

Dear Whale-Curious Friends,
It’s remarkable! The largest animal in the world feeds on one of the ocean’s smallest creatures.
It’s Spring and the Earth feels so fresh and new.
The flowers have gone wild, whales are migrating back to their summer feeding grounds and baby animals are everywhere.
It time to celebrate!
