Shortly after Monterey Bay Whale Watch took about a dozen hopeful whale-watchers out to sea last Tuesday, the group received a call from a fishing boat.
“Hey, is anyone whale watching? I’ve got some killer whales up here,” Katlyn Taylor, a marine biologist with the California company, recalled the fisherman telling them.
They set out for the coordinates, about 40 minutes away, unsure of what they would be able to see by the time they got there. Nevertheless, the passengers on board the SeaWolf II were atwitter with excitement.
