How would you like to see something like this the next time you take your Kayak out into Bodega Bay? Last Saturday near Avila Beach (San Luis Obispo) A mother and daughter in separate kayaks came dangerously close to a surfacing humpback whale.
Another article by Bob Norberg in The Press Democrat says there are reports of blue whales that were just a couple hundred yards off Bodega Head. Blue whale photo courtesy of flickkerphotos.
The New York Times is reporting that blue whales, the world’s largest animal, are being seen in droves off the Northern California coast. The ocean giants are being lured by an increase this year in their favorite food — shrimplike creatures known as krill.
