Hello whalewatcheres,

We arrived at Islas San Benito before breakfast. Everyone went ashore and had a great day on the island. There were plenty of elephant seals who had returned to molt and weaned pups from this year are still there. (Photos by Chris Earley and Nigel Carter.)

There were good looks at osprey on the nest with chicks. We traveled south this afternoon and had a visit from Pacific white-sided dolphins which have been rare this season. They rode the bow for a long time and everyone had a good look. We saw black-footed and Laysan albatross too.

We are headed to Laguna San Ignacio and looking for gray whales.
