    We had an excellent time with this group!! They met friendly whales right off the bat. We would sing or do some chanting: Aqui Balleena, Balleena, Balleena! 

We took the opportunity of the morning high tide to head into the mangroves for a closer look at the wildlife that presents itself. We saw some yellow crowned and black crowned night herons, white ibis, and a few tricolored herons all fishing for breakfast! We had some nice calm weather in the mornings to watch the gray whales feed on a light snack of amphipods. We also had one session of observing the courtship and mating behaviors! What a great trip and a experience that will last a life time.

All the best,
