If you follow our blog, you know how much I love to be outside. The weather has been incredibly warm this week in San Francisco. We are talking above 70s which is not the norm. I took full advantage of the time outside which included a walk on the beach after work on Tuesday evening. As I was walking out to the waters edge, I started seeing spouts bursting straight into the air. 3 of them right among the surfers and there were the most surfers I’ve seen out there in a while. What I saw next blew me away, a large pod of humpback whales breaching and frolicking amongst the surfers. I’m sure it wasn’t as neat to be a surfer and have one of them surprise you next to your dangling feet but it seemed like an extra special sighting that I felt lucky to witness.
You can see one spout in the distance.
Two of them here popped up to watch the sunset.
It was truly unbelievable and I hope to see them again on my next beach walk. There are places you can go in the bay area to whale watch and it looks like this weekend might be the time to do it! Check out this company to leave right out of Pier 39 and maybe you’ll get luck enough to see these beautiful mammals navigate the seas.
Have a great weekend!
Great pictures! 🙂
Wow awesome pictures. What a treat
Reblogged this on Just a little Brit.
This last week was incredible in SF. I just wish I had seen the whales.
I was out kite surfing at OB on Wednesday May 7, 2014 and I saw a few whales breach not 50 feet away. Freakin’ scary as all hell! 😉
that’s amazing!! I was really hoping someone had a gopro out there to at least capture these beauties while being a tad scared 🙂
