The afternoon trip started off just South of the Chain Islands in Oak Bay. We went directly to the whales without making any stops as we were looking forward to seeing the Superpod again, plus getting another look at the brand new baby was high on our list So exciting that L41 (Mega) is once again a new uncle, as his sister L77 (Matia) was found to be the new mother of L119 !!!! On the morning tour all the whales were grouped into 2 large resting groups. For the afternoon tour, the whales had started spreading out a bit and had increased their speed as they approached San Juan Island. J’s & K’s were leading the way as they traveled at speeds over 13 kts. They must have been excited to get back home to the San Juans. They were probably hungry for a late afternoon Salmon dinner By the time all three pods had reached San Juan Island, they had spread out over 5 miles from Limekiln all the way down to False Bay. Great to have all of them back in the Salish Sea. Unfortunately, L5 (Tanya) and L12 (Alexis) were not seen at all today If L5 and L12 are gone, this would bring the Lpod population down to 40 whales, as we lost L112 (Victoria) earlier this spring when she washed up along the Washington outer coast !!!!! Lets hope Tanya and Alexis are still out there somewhere !!!!
