Resident Orcas Off San Juan Island

Anacortes:

Rhinoceros auklets in Guemes Channel
Harbor seals on rocks near Shark Reef
Bald eagles throughout the entire trip
Resident orcas (members of J and K pods)!!

We had an awesome trip filled with tons of orcas!  We spent time with members of the J14s and K16s off Eagle Point on the westside of San Juan Island.  The weather was great and so were the whales!

La Conner: 

Highlights:
SO many great blue herons
Bald eagles
White pelicans off March Point
Black oystercatchers at Swirl Rocks
Steller sea lion at Whale Rocks
Resident orcas (members of J pod)

What an amazing day on the water!  We left the dock and headed north out of the slough past the train bridge and down Guemes Channel passing the Anacortes waterfront.  We made it over to the westside of San Juan Island where we spent time with members of Jpod resident orcas : L87, J22, J38, J16, J26, J42, J50, J19, J41, and J51.  Great whale time all before heading to lunch in Fisherman’s Bay on Lopez Island.  After lunch we made our way back toward out dock in La Conner through Deception Pass.  Beautiful.
