The 10:00 am trip this morning was not able to find any Orcas However, we did spend lots of time with a very frisky/young Humpback Whale near Whidbey Island !!! For the 2:30 pm departure we ventured Southeast towards Dungeness Spit where we encountered a very spread out J & K Pod. The animals were foraging hard as they swam to the West slowly. Our first sighting was of J34 (Double Stuff), his sibling J38 (Cookie) and their mom, J22 (Oreo) !!!! Afterwards, we saw J27 (Blackberry) and his two siblings J31 (Tsuchi) and J39 (Mako) cruising together. The animals were doing long dives of 5-6 minutes and were spread over 2-3 miles as they traveled West. Great views of the Olympic Mountains as we approached offshore of Port Angeles. The sea state was absolutely flat calm. Great water skiing conditions out there Near the end of the tour, we saw a handful of K-pod whales traveling along with the J’s. A small portion of J-pod was seen earlier in the day way up North off Point Roberts. Strange to see J-pod split up so early in the year ?? From the Orcas we traveled West to Race Rocks Lighthouse where we encountered 15-20 Steller Sea Lions on West Race, 6-8 female Elephant Seals on Helicopter Rock and dozens of Harbour Seals at the Lighthouse.
