Has anyone seen the spill or heard exactly where it at and moving?

Was found today by a whale watching crew and posted on IG

We were down in the 371 and 425 area yesterday and could smell what seemed like burning rubber? Checked and double checked it was not my boat! It was an awful smell but subtle. I wonder if it is related

Thats some gnarly footage, hopefully someone has the technology & caught it in time to isolate any tankers in the area, what-else could cause a spill that large......
maybe fuel?

The dolphins footage looks like fuel or a light oil film but they said there was another area that was thick with oil and made it seem like the black sludge type.

For all we know the oil slick in the video is from an aircraft fuel dump

    Why would that not be publicized? Seems strange there are no reports of the cause for something like this. Especially, if it's 50-70 miles in scope. Maybe a Geological event?

    I think i'll believe the Coast Guards assessment of the size of the spill rather than some some whale watcher on a nature cruise.A huge oil spill would definitely make the news.

    I noticed that too and did the same thing. I thought it smelled like burnt diesel

    We literally did the same exact thing that day. Stopped twice for 10 minutes and tore through the boat trying to find what we thought was an electrical failure.

    Glad to see we weren't just tripping!
