Whales & Wildlife Report – 7/31 (Minke Whales)

There isn’t a cloud in the sky – an absolutely gorgeous day in the San Juans. While the Orca whales are just a bit out of our range today, we were able to see a group of about 6 Minke whales off the SW coast of San Juan Island. Our passengers got some great views of these whales, which measure 23-30 feet in length and are quite common in the San Juan Islands. The drawing at left shows the size of a Minke whale in comparison to a human.
