Penn Cove and Gray Whales

Everett

Gray whales #21 and #22

Today the Island Explorer 3 left the dock in Everett and turn north in search of wildlife and whales.  As we reached Penn Cove, just north of Coupeville on Whidbey Island, and were joined by two gray whales who we believe to be #21 and #22!!   They had short down times which made our time with them full of fantastic looks!  We even had some close passes from the pair.   On our way back to the dock the sky broke way to a bit of blue right above the Olympic Mountain Range.   Despite the impending weather forecast, the rain held off for the majority of the trip!  We wish our guests, Arvada West High School Band and Orchestra the very best in their upcoming competition.  It was a pleasure having them out on the water with us today!
