What an amazing day to be on the water with clam seas, beautiful sunny weather and a plethora of whales:) We started the morning trip with our Cpt. Trev discovering a Humpback Whale near Church Rocks, plus an unconfirmed report that Orcas had been sighted by the Coho Ferry. Then as we were watching the Humpback we received confirmation that the Coho Ferry had indeed sighted Orcas off Port Angeles! So off we went in search of the Orcas and as we arrived on scene we soon realized we had Jpod, Kpod and the majority of Lpod all moving in from the West. What a spectacular sight to observe almost 70 Orcas traveling together and surfacing almost in unison!!
In the afternoon we caught up with the Orcas just near Lime Kiln Lighthouse and had some amazing passes by several Orcas including L73 "Flash", who is believed to be the son of J1 "Ruffles" and is looking almost identical to J1. We watched some wonderful interaction between the Orcas and were delighted to see a number of incredible spy hops!
It was one of the best days on the water this season so far:)
