Currently back on boat until Wednesday, at latest, January 14, 2004. Then, off to either Mazatlan or Puerto Vallarta. yet to decide. See pictures below.

  Whale slapping. Picture given to show you how close/far the whale(s) are/were from the boat. Next ones show nice action. More was to be seen for 20 minutes, but photo abilities lacking on taking exact pictures. Have LOTS of video though!

Gray Whale.

Quite the breaching whale!


The dolphins are a regularly daily event, seeming to guide us to every destination. We have now gotten books to identify the types of whales and dolphins. Need a book called Fish of the Pacific but can't find it anywhere here!
