250 common dolphins, 100 bottlenose dolphins, mola mola, bonito fish

We tried hard to find a whale but there weren’t any out there today. We saw everything that was out there though!! Started the morning with a nice pod of common dolphins, then found a school of bonito fish feeding on bait and jumping out of the water, then saw a very large mola mola, had great looks at it, very large with lots of white patches and bright yellowish lips. Then finished our morning with 100 plus bottlenose dolphin jumping out of the water and "Patches" the white patched dolphin was in the mix as well. Got great looks at everything!! Very nice day on the pacific ocean!

2 humpback whales, 1000 common dolphins

We saw 2 humpback whales, separately with one coming close to the boat. They both fluked a couple of times. Captain did a great job positioning the boat for the best whale views. We then saw a pod of 1000 common dolphins. A very nice day on the ocean!
