Another beautiful, sunshiny day as we left Anacortes with reports of orcas, including the Residents! After we checked out some harbor seals on Colville Island, Capt. Eric spotted a humpback by Iceberg Point on Lopez Island. We got a few good looks, including a nice fluke-up tail dive. We then headed to the north side of Orcas Island to visit with some lovely transients, probably the T75 group. With minimal boat traffic with this group, we were able to enjoy watching them travel around the Pea Pod Islands, toward Barnes and Clark Island. ) ~Bonnie Gretz, volunteer naturalist (all pictures tightly cropped).
