This morning I launched my kayak from Mission Bay and proceeded out the channel to open ocean. Gray and overcast with a nice breeze keeping it cool. I had not decided where I would go at first. Point Loma kelp bed or Wreck Alley. My hope was to see some blue whales. I am not sure if I can get out far enough in my kayak to see them. But one report from a local weatherman said he spotted some from Torrey Pines. This suggests that is is possible. And I have seen gray whales in close to shore.
Exiting the Channel I spotted some dive boats out at the Ruby E. So I decided to head there. A little wind chop but the swell was small. At the Ruby E I stopped and chatted with the divers there. They then set off for a second dive at Point Loma kelp beds.
I could see some boats out at The Yukon. So I paddled there. Once there I chatted with the divers there. Was told the Yukon is now completely over on its Port side. I don't know when that happened. I could be a while ago. I have not dived there for quite some time.
After this break I headed back to Mission Bay. No whales or even dolphins this day. But a nice paddle
