This was the first time I ever saw a killer whale! It was the first time ever seeing the Pacific Ocean and my first time ever to the west coast. I decided to go out with Five Stars Whale Watching on their morning tour.
We met up with L Pod out near San Juan Island.
I still remember watching one of the males dorsal (L85 “Mystery) sway when he made a tight turn to chase a salmon. I remember watching their dorsals cut through the waves and how they moved.
It was beyond amazing and today I feel lucky to have the encounters with whales that i have had over the past summer.
