And as usual, after recovery of the capsule, she will be brought to the Port of Long Beach for initial post-saving steps and removal of time-critical cargo.

According to data on MarineTraffic.com it appears that NRC Quest had picked up Dragon and was heading back to port within about 75 mins of splashdown.

Current (loose) ETA in port is very late tomorrow night (UTC) time or mid-afternoon local time. I suspect theres a large error bound on that though.

Dragon is headed to port with ~4,100 pounds of scientific research and hardware for a cargo handover to @NASA.
