Southern Resident Orcas
September 24, 2018
Today we headed to confirm a sighting out East, once reaching the South West side of San Juan Island we were able to spot some tall dorsal fins. This meant that there was a group of Orca ahead. With observing after a while we were able to figure out that it was our local group of Resident Orca! We are always thrilled to have this ecotype around to see that they are okay as they have been on a decline and are now critically endangered. After watching them fish for a little bit we headed back on our long journey home.
