Whales & Wildlife Report – 6/16-6/17 (Orca Whales – J-Pod & A Humpback Whale)

Another great weekend of whale watching in the San Juan Islands. On Saturday and Sunday we saw J-Pod, one of the three resident pods of Orcas. We’ve gotten to know this pod very well over the past two weeks, with sightings just about every day. However, while watching a group of Orcas off to one side of the boat, we were pleasantly surprised by an appearance of a Humpback whale on the other side of the boat. We had the opportunity to stay with them for quite a while, before heading off to Friday Harbor for our 2 hour shore visit. With the weather improving, school nearly out for the year, and lots of whales to be seen, it’s a great time to join us on our San Juan Adventure cruise.
