Whale Watch Report for 8-1-2022

Through the Mist

Katie Robertson

The sightings continue! Being the Whale Watching Capital of the West Coast means we better know our stuff about cetaceans. What are cetaceans? That’s the scientific term for animals in the whale, dolphin, and porpoise category of marine mammals. From there we can break down the categories even farther into baleen and toothed whales. Baleen whales are your Humpbacks, Grays, Minke, etc. and toothed whales include Orcas, Sperm, and Dolphins just to name a few. Baleen are mostly filter feeders while toothed go for larger, meatier prey. We would love to share all our knowledge of these gentle giants.
