What a day !

Saturday June 9 , Well the weather was a little ugly with lots of rain , but the whales ! In the morning we saw Jpod near San Juan Island in a tight resting formation. Later we encountered a group of 12 Transient Killer Whales hunting near Race Rocks , to top it off we had one of the first viewings of the year of L Pod. Photos by Brian Glennon, KillerWhale.ca

Eagle eye

Our late trips today had the please of seeing 3 of the young orcas playing together in the kelp beds off Henry Island. We also spotted what I thought was a cormorant in the water struggling with a fish for several minutes, upon closer inspection we saw it was a bald eagle.

Waiting for the cousins

J pod continues to make us all happy by being in the area on a daily basis. Historically the rest of the Clan (K and L Pod) ,who have been away for 5 months, will make their return to the area in the coming weeks. Always very exciting. Photos by Brian Glennon , KillerWhale.ca

transients with calf

Late in the day we located J pod travelling South in Rosario Strait there was a number of unidentified whales and we realized that this was a group of transients trailing J pod, perhaps a hunting strategy? The transients later showed up in Haro Strait near Henry Island travelling north. The Male is T87. Photos by Brian Glennon , Killerwhale.ca

Southern Residents , Georgia Strait

J Pod made another appearance today , they were last seem heading toward the Fraser River after cruising the Gulf Islands for the day. They seem to really love getting through Active Pass and entering the Strait , always lots of breaching and purcussive behavior. With the exception of several B.C. Ferries running over the whales it was a beautiful evening again, Photos by Brian Glennon

Evening with the J's

Few things could be better than being with J pod on a evening with glass smooth water and warm breezes. J pod was heading for Active Pass very spread out across Haro Strait. They decided to get together into a tight group prior to entering the pass. Photos by Brian Glennon , www.KillerWhale.ca
