Captain Lancer was a truly unique individual. I accompanied him many times out to sea on the “Magnum Force” vessel in Monterey, California. He was a gruff ol’ guy but deep down if you got to know him was a deep, intellectual and very sea worthy man.
My most memorable time out whale watching was because of him. I watched in amazement as a mother humpback whale and her baby breached out of the ocean.
I stood at the deck with my camera as a curious whale came right up to us… Even with a wide angle lens, I could not capture but it’s head for its size!
Rest in Peace Captain Lancer… I will ALWAYS remember you.
