An amazing day on the water today with both Bigg’s (Transient) and Southern Resident Killer Whales. On our way back from a couple of humpbacks, we saw J’s and K’s coming up from Turn Point.
We shut down and just waited until everyone cleared and at one point, J41 and J51 broke off from the group and swam over towards the boat and swam along side us before spyhopping in front of us.
One of those magical resident moments that was overshadowed by the loss of J35’s newborn. This population just can’t catch a break.
