L-pod, and 6 Minke Whales in the afternoon! Sept 30, 2010

We headed out in the afternoon hoping to catch up to L2 and her sons again this afternoon and we were not disappointed:) On our way over to the Orcas we came across 2 groups of Dall's Porpoise who played briefly in or bow wave.

When we arrived on scene with the Orcas they were near Eagle Point and were again foraging. L2 & L88 were close to shore whilst L78 was further offshore.

We also encountered at least three and possibly as many as 6 Minke Whales this afternoon and had an incredible experience when one Minke Whale swallowed an entire bait Ball (small schooling fish) that we had been watching!
