Whale Spotted Off Carlsbad Coast

At least five people confirmed seeing a whale jump out of the water between Cannon Road and Tower 31 in Carlsbad.

In the photo there is a tiny speck of white from the whale expelling air through the blowhole. 

I saw the whale breach while out for a walk around 11:45 a.m. Thursday across from the power plant in Carlsbad, but unfortunately I wasn't quick enough to get it on camera. 

Did you see this whale or another one recently around Carlsbad? Tell us in the comments.

I have seen whales, seals, dolphins, sharks and schools of boiling fish off the shore from the parking area on the Coast Highway just south of Palomar Airport Road. It's a nice place to park and eat your lunch with a vast view of the horizon. John Batista a resident of Carlsbad since the early 1950's.

Every now and then I get In-N-Out and park there while eating my lunch. It's a great view!
