This afternoon we had a great encouner with a Humpback Whale out west! This particular Humpback has been seen wandering around the Salish Sea for a few weeks now and this time we encountered the Whale near Church Rocks, just west of Race Rocks. We got to see its large Tail Fluke a number of times as the Whale made a deep dive. It also surfaced a couple of times just over 100 feet from our boat, thrilling our passengers. Humpback Whales are the largest whales we see on a consistent basis in our area and their comeback is so exciting to see as each year we get more and more returning to the Salish Sea
We also got to see a Bald Eagle as well as several Harbor Seals and even a California Sea Lion at Race Rocks.
