    Default Boring Marine Science Stuff

    We had our last field trip on Saturday. We piled onto a boat and went out onto Monterey bay where we dragged a side-scan sonar fish behind the boat and looked at the ocean floor. Then we lowered a TV camera into the water and checked out bottom dwellers.



    Day break on Monterey bay.



    The Monterey Bay Aquarium from the other side. We sat out here for an hour while we gooffed around with various scientific equipment.

    Then we went out and said "Howdy" to some visitors from Costa Rica:







    These three Humpbacks were in town to enjoy the local cuisine. They had scares a school of Sardines into forming a tight formation near the ocean floor, this made it easy for the whales to dive down and scoop up the fish in one gulp.

    What? You want more whale pictures?

    Okay..











    The only thing I missed was a breach, I was on the other side of the boat flirting with a coed.

    Yeah, I'm no marine biologist, but I'm pretty sure when they yell "thar she blows", they're talking about the whales, not the coeds.

    Better luck next time.

    Axx - How would this be considered boring? Amazing pictures and it's probably pretty incredible when you are so close. Post all the pictures you want because I think they're awesome.
    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly.

    Awesome pics! I would love to do some whale watching.

    Wife, boys and I are going to Cancun next month and I am working on a side trip to Holbox Island to snorkel with whale sharks.

    WOW! I would LOVE to do that one day! Very cool!


    And great pics AX, I'll have to dig up the pics of the injured whale my cousin (boat capt) took. She was cut badly from a large ship. Pretty graphic. But she was followed by a group from a whale rehab unit (not sure the name) and apparently healed well. This was on the east coast BTW.
    Thanks for posting them!
