L41 & L-pod off San Juan Island! July 6th, 2011
What a wonderful morning to be out Whale Watching and with a smashing group of girls all the way from Bolton in the North of England:) The girls were visiting Canada and America to play Lacrosse and it was great to have them on-board.
We headed down towards Salmon bank this morning where we encountered L-pod including L41 "Mega". This was the first time this summer season that all of L-pod had been in the Salish Sea so apart from the Whale Watching boats there were two boats from the Center for Whale Research out taking i.d. photo's of L-pod to see who had returned.
We got some awesome shots of L41 with Mt. Baker in the background this morning! As we observed L-pod we also witnessed a number of spyhops, tail slaps, a couple of breaches:)
It is days like this with wonderful guests, a beautiful day on the water and amazing Orca action, that remind me I have the best job in the world:)
