J-pod returns to the Salish Sea:) May 20th, 2012

Ron Bates, MMRG, received a report at approximately 12.10pm from Russ Nicks, that 4 Transient Orcas were near Sooke, heading East. We immediately contacted the next boat leaving Victoria and sent it west to investigate and they did encounter the T's near Becher Bay moving East. When we set out on our 2pm tour we heard the T's had turned Wast and were near Secretary. Just as we arrived on scene one of the other boats thought they saw more blows closer to shore and when we investigated we discovered it was J-pod moving East towards Race Rocks! Finally, J-pod had returned to the Salish Sea after almost 2 weeks out at sea:)
