Thar She Blows!

On Tuesday, August 8th, there was an eye-catching report
of a "baby Gray Whale in Dana Point harbor".
 
"How cool is that!" I said.
"I wish that happened in Newport".
 
Two days later, it did.
 
One of my gondoliers, Jack Maskrey texted me a video of that same whale...gliding beneath one of our gondolas at dock.
 
Here's a clip that was put together using that footage:

There it was - a Gray Whale in Newport Harbor.
Later that day, the passengers on one of our gondolas
shot this while cruising:

We often get calls from people looking for whale-watching cruises.
For a limited time in Newport, we were actually providing it!

For more details and some good photos,
