Taken at Dana Wharf Whale Watching ~ Dana Point

Report and Photo’s by Carla Mitroff – Edited by Deanna Hansen

These 4th & 5th grade students were in for a big surprise as they boarded the Dana Pride with Capt. Todd Mansur and Capt. Tom White. These young scholars got  to see a southbound breaching gray whale showing it’s baleen that you don’t see very often. They had a very exciting morning with fluking and breaching gray whales!
