Today we had a wonderful encounter with Jpod off the west side of San Juan Island! The Orcas had been heard earlier in the day on the Hydrophone and when we headed out in the afternoon we picked them up south of Hanna Heights traveling down island.
As we just arrived on scene we saw J34 “DoubleStuf” breach a couple
of times, it was an amazing sight! Then the Orcas began to flip flop
back and forth. We got to see some tail slaps and spyhops as the pod
continued to change direction constantly. Then the group formed together
as they went into resting mode.
Apart from Jpod we also got to see Porpoise and Harbor Seals. It was a gorgeous day on the water!
