There have been quite a few whale sightings down south, which makes our March 7th start more and more exciting!
Via Orca Network’s Facebook Page:
Monday February 23rd
- 8:30AM – 9AM Likely humpback sighted northwest of Edmonds
- 11AM Transient orcas sighted in Saratoga Passage (key gray whale location)
- 5PM same humpback sighted again near Edmonds
- 9AM Transient orcas just south of Bush Point in Admiralty Inlet
- Starting around 2:55PM to 3:35PM reports of a possible gray whale were coming in just off shore of Point No Point, Kitsap — comment from Orca Network says they are fairly sure it was a gray “a lot of white on the head – no dorsal fin. Seemed smaller than a humpback”
We are out for the first time of the season March 7th and 8th out of Everett — hope to see you there!
Gray whale season is approaching and are so ready to get our whale watching season started!
The gray whales have been spotted moving north up the California Coast! I talked to Annie, one of our past staff who now lives in San Diego, and she has confirmed that the annual northbound migration of the gray whales has begun. Check out two of her photos from California of some grays!
This is great news for our opening weekend just two weeks away on March 7th and 8th. We are scheduled for 11AM departures from Everett aboard the Island Explorer 3!! Come and enjoy these gentile giants with us!
