A wild ride from Seattle!

Our tour from Bell Harbor Marina today took us into Puget Sound to search for whales. The wind was whipping all day long, but our guests were ready for the ride and ready to help us look for whales! We had nice views of the downtown skyline as we left the dock and crashed through the waves toward Vashon Island, where we got a little break from the seas. A bald eagle was on the rocks near Brainbridge Island fighting to stay upright with the wind. Pushing north, we put out a great search pattern that took us to Possession Point and the south end of Whidbey Island. Two harbor seals were there near the shallow water indicating that food was in the region, but nothing big popped up with them. Turning back south we had a really nice view of the Seattle waterfront again as it was lit by the setting sun. Unfortunately, we could not find a whale in the seas, but everyone will get a chance to return until we find them one!
