Enormous New Friend Makes It Safely Back To Sea
As you can see in the VIDEO BELOW, the roughly fifty foot long Humpback Whale, which is not fully mature, somehow got lost inside the Venture Harbor Marina on this weekend afternoon. It is migration season from the Colder North to the Warmer Southern waters of Mexico. Ventura is part of the Channel Islands National Park Reserve.
This whale, a healthy juvenile was coaxed out to sea late that night with the use of an underwater Hydrophone to play other whale songs. Hopefully it will soon be reunited with other pod members.
The great whale species such as the Great Blue Whale, the Humpback, Gray, and Killer Orcas, all travel between the mainland coast and the islands of Santa Cruz and Anacapa. This region is very rich with many different marine species and birds.

I was on the top of my boat (last vessel, upper left) for HOURS enjoying the magnificent beauty of this gentle creature! Went to bed around 10 pm and he/she kept coming up for air every few minutes well past midnight. There were HUNDREDS of all ages watching from shore & cheering wildly every time the whale approached the rocks in 10 feet of water! HALLELUJAH!! We saved a whale!! 🐳✌🏼️❤️
