A Pelican was resting on the rocks under the cliff
We took a whale watching trip from Ventura harbour out to the Channel Islands
In December and January grey whales travel south to Mexico between the islands and the California coast
Ventura harbour was the departure point for our whale watching trip
While waiting for news of whale activity we took a look at the coastlines of Anacapa and Santa Cruz islands
The sister ship to our boat had located two grey whales and both ships slowly followed the whales at a safe distance
This is one of the sightings we had.
A brief video of a grey whale blowing as it comes up for air.
