Whale Watching

Whale Watching

I'm in the middle of a bunch of projects that I can't wait to share soon. In the mean time, we went whale watching off of San Juan Island in Washington last week! It was a really great experience (even thought 12+ hours on a boat was a lot). We saw about a dozen Southern Resident Killer Whales from J Pod.

There are only about 80 Southern Resident Killer Whales in the world and they survive mostly on a diet of salmon. One of the whales in J pod, Granny, is estimated to be over 105 years old and is the oldest killer whale in the world. The baby Orcas were adorable and it was so much fun to watch them play.

We left from Seattle on the Victoria Clipper Ferry early in the morning on our way to Friday Harbor. The boat travels on the east side of Whidbey Island on the way there and on the west side on the way back. The whales were close to San Juan Island, so we got to spend a little over an hour watching them. We had an hour and a half in Friday Harbor for lunch and to tour the Whale Museum.

There were also plenty of birds and seals near San Juan Island and also in Deception Pass. It is amazing how well the seals blend into the rocks.
