Humpback Whale Hanging Out in Santa Cruz

An adult Humpback Whale has been seen in about 40 feet of water near the Main Beach in Santa Cruz. Apparently, this beautiful mammal has been feeding on anchovies & sardines which are plentiful this time of year. He has been putting on a show, breaching close to our sail boats.

It’s always better to just go on a sailing excursion with no expectations of seeing whales. We’ve found it’s best to just let the whales find you rewarding you with an amazing treat.
