This is one of the coolest things that happens on board! When the dolphins show up and play with us! On a return trip from Santa Barbara we had a group of dolphins that stayed with us for about 6 hours. It was amazing how they just continued on with us mile after mile up the coast. They must have gotten a break from the usual monotony of swimming against the current.
We see whales all the time on Estero Bay. Sometimes there is bait fish in the area and the whales, sea lions, birds are just having a field day hunting and playing with the bait.
