We went on our second whale watch, first one out of Ventura. The weather cooperated and the people involved with Island Packers made our trip a thoroughly enjoyable experience. We experience hundreds of Porpoises, Pelicans, Sea Lions, and a half dozen grey whales. A juvenile approached us very closely with Mom close behind. The exuberant youngster breached exposing the top third of the body. What a sight! I have never seen one so close! The crew was great and lingered for a while out with the whales a bit beyond our time. The porpoises "talked" to us and raced with the boat, surrounding us. What a treat!
