Trip got off a little bit late this morning. We had very reliable whale information up Bellingham Channel south bound so of course we made our way into that area. It took us about 35 min to get to Whale Rocks at Long Island where we had some really cool harbour seals hauled out on the rocks and playing in the water as well as 2 bald eagles nesting in what is considered to be one of the more impressive eagle nests in the area that we operate whale watching tours. It is about 12 feet across and about 10 feet deep, pretty big structure they call home with no property taxes and waterfront real estate, kind of nice. From there we went around the corner to Colville Island and Davidson Rock and progressed only about a 1.5 miles around the corner south into Rosario Strait where we had J-pod and some of what appeared to be L-pod members south bound all grouped up. It was a beautiful visual lots of playful activity, no vocalizing or echolocating however they were very very quiet and they were swimming quickly until they got around the corner. Here they spread out and had a maximum feeding and forging behaviour and that was pretty much consistent through right to the end of the day. We followed them to right to about Iceberg, bottom of Lopez Island where we left and a had a really nice visual of Blackberry J-27 right at the end of the trip. Fantastic experience
