Cp Marine Whale Watching

On January 23rd Mr. Muilenbergs CP Marine class went on a whale watching field trip near Oceanside Harbor. He had taken all of his classes on different days, but on the 23rd his fourth period class was lucky enough to see a ton of wildlife. They saw a humpback whale and a pod of up to about 5,000 dolphins. The humpback whale was extremely rare as they are not usually seen in these waters. They were only hoping to see gray whales but instead saw a humpback fluke within twenty feet of the boat. It was truly a once in a lifetime sighting because of it being so rare to see a humpback, and to have it fluke so close to the boat. We thank Captain Joe of the Sea Star, for being such a great whale watching guide.
