J-Pod

J-Pod

The Mystic Sea caught up with J-Pod just off the South end of Lopez Island today.  We arrived just in time to see the whales breaching and tail slapping. The whales actively splashed around for about an hour as they hunted and porpoised through the water.   J-Pod  spread out from Lopez to Salmon Bank as they worked together foraging for food.

After a good show of whales, the Captain of the Mystic Sea took us by Cattle Point Lighthouse.  We continued to Whale Rocks to visit the Steller Sea Lions.  Theses amazing creatures weigh about 2,000 pounds.  Not your average Sea Lion!

We traveled through Richardson, around Iceberg and through the inside of Swirl Rock.  We got to see Eagles’ nests, a Bald Eagle, Harbor Seals and Burrows Island Lighthouse.  Beautiful day!

Thank you RJ for the photo.
