South Lincoln County News: "Sometimes the ocean provides an unanticipated spectacle, as it did for Peterson 35 miles offshore from Newport as the Miller Freeman headed in. They cruised through a stretch of ocean teeming with life, as killer whales, humpback whales, sea lions, fur seals, and porpoises put on a dazzling display.
“The humpbacks were breaching and skyhopping, everybody was feeding and the porpoises were rising up and walking on their tails,” said Peterson. “I’ve never seen anything like it.”
It’s research wrapped around the mysteries and wonders of the ocean, with the NOAA fleet and other research vessels providing the stage."
