Orca Breachfest 2016!


-Trek to the north
-Breaching orcas everywhere!
-Playful harbor porpoise

We headed north today along the east side of Guemes Island. We hugged the Lummi Island shoreline as we continued. We trekked all the way into Canada north of the coal port to catch up with members of J pod! We visited with all the members of J pod today: J2 (Granny), J37 (Hy’Shqa), J40 (Suttles), J45 (Se-Yi’-chn), J49 (T’ilem I’nges), J19 (Shachi), J41 (Eclipse), J51 (Nova), J22 (Oreo), J34 (Doublestuf), J38 (Cookie), J27 (Blackberry), J31 (Tsuchi), J39 (Mako), J16 (Slick), J26 (Mike), J42 (Echo), J36 (Alki), J50 (Scarlett), J52 (Sonic), J17 (Princess Angeline), J28 (Polaris), J46 (Star), J54, J35 (Tahlequah), J47 (Notch), J44 (Moby), J53 and L87 (Oynx). As we got on scene, they were headed our way. They started getting really active! We dubbed it “Breachfest 2016”! We even had multiple double breaches and a perfectly synchronized triple breach! A triple breach! It was amazing! We even had multiple cartwheels! We stayed a little longer than we planned as the action just kept going! We got to the dock a little late, but it was totally worth it!
