After hearing about the extraordinaire amount of blue whales feeding off coast this year, Heal the Bay's staff, including head honcho Mark Gold checked it out this past Sunday. The results were stunning.

"Sunday morning was beyond incredible. If you haven’t gone out to see the Blues, shame on you," he exclaimed on his blog. "There is no way humanly possible to witness a more satisfying natural event in the Bay. We started seeing spouts within a half mile offshore. The boat was only a mile from the coast when we found ourselves surrounded by the magnificent mammals."
