KABC-TV had a nice view of a killer whale pod in the San Pedro Channel on Monday. While grey whale season is ending, the orcas were out and about. These large dolphins -- yes, they are dolphins, despite the whale name -- can often be seen in the area, especially further out around the outer Channel Islands.

Speaking of which, outer island National Park Service trips to Santa Rosa and San Miguel islands start back up later this month, with trips to Santa Barbara Island beginning in late July. Also, Blue and Humpback whale season is June through August.
