Video by Colleen Wilson.

A group of whales paid their respects to the troops today by putting on a show for the U.S. Coast Guard in our local waters.

Colleen Wilson of Sector Humboldt Bay shares this footage of whales breaching two miles offshore from Humboldt Bay.

“Out on the Coast Guard Motor Lifeboat and saw these babies this morning!” Wilson told the Outpost. “These guys are sweet!”

At ease, whales. Report back to LoCO at zero-six-hundred hours.
