Whales & Wildlife Report – 8/27 (Orca Whales – J-Pod)

What a day! We were only a couple of hours into our cruise when we found J-pod in the Strait of Georgia, about halfway between Pt. Roberts and Patos Island. They were very playful today, with lots of breaches (whales jumping out of the water) and spy-hopping (where they come straight up out of the water and hold their position for a few seconds). Pleasant weather too, with blue skies and a few clouds, with temps in the low 70’s.
