The Aquarium of the Pacific here in Long Beach invited MomsLA (and other press) to go on a whale watching cruise last week. No way was I passing up this awesome opportunity. I bundled up in my sweater and leather coat, borrowed a scarf and gloves from my friend and off I went.
Unfortunately I have a crap camera (my blackberry) for video and the good video I took (with my iPod Touch) in no way holds a candle to what my colleague Sarah Auerswald was able to capture.
We saw two pods of dolphins, one of which was bottle-nosed. And at least 11 Fin Whale. And 1 lonely sea lion. All in all a really good sighting day. A few days earlier and on the cruise after ours they had ORCA sightings! I can’t believe we missed that!
Take a look at Sarah’s video, see if you can spot the baby dolphin swimming with it’s momma. Then scroll down to win 2 tickets to the Long Beach Aquarium of the Pacific.
