Dolphin Roundup 2011: The Best San Francisco County Dolphin Sightings of the Year, Plus Babies From Years Past

Friday, December 2nd, 2011

I’ll tell you, I was shocked when I found out that you could see dolphins while just walking about San Francisco.

Like this, from Lands End, from a while back:

Now I personally didn’t take any new shots this year, but here’s a roundup of the best shots from 2011 so far:

From Fort Winfield Scott, The Presidio – jump jump!

From Ft. Winfield Scott – jumping the other way

From the Golden Gate Bridge – see the shadow? 

From the Golden Gate Bridge – bottlenoses

From the Golden Gate Bridge – at 200mm

From a boat – Pacific white-sided

From a boat – northern white whale dolphins

From a boat near the Farallones – Risso’s

Castro Street Fair – tattoo category (Uh, law school called – they want their diploma back)

That was 2011, now here’s yesteryear:

From Fort Funston. (Now, why did we name an entire fort after that Filipino Killing Cracker?) Anyway, here’s the view, sometimes:

Same angle:

As promised, baby dolphins, avec maman:

And here they are swimming south, off to sample the yummy seafood in the waters off San Mateo County:
