Looking for Blue Whales – Got Dolphins and Sea Lions

  • Six dolphins swimming in a row.Dolphins were swimming in formation.


Today we boarded a whale watching boat in the Long Beach Harbor for a three hour tour – a three hour tour.  We didn’t see any whales, but we saw dolphins and sea lions.  Lots and lots of dolphins.  They were all around us and swam alongside our boat.

There were sea lions loitering on this yellow buoy.  All of a sudden, one swam up and seemed to be kissing the other one.  It was an enjoyable afternoon.  We only got slightly sunburned.   I want to go again next month and see if we can catch sight of some blue whales.
