10/7 trip report – on our last scheduled whale watch trip for 2018, we set off under rainy skies through the San Juan Islands towards Spieden Island, where whales had been spotted! We found the T49As again, a family of 5 whales (mom and 4 kids) and had great views of them, between a few rain drops, but also enjoying beautifully calm seas. We left the whales trending towards Waldron Island, and we continued to Sucia Island to see Steller sea lions and harbor seals. Several bald eagles were spotted, and when almost back to port, lots of harbor porpoise. An ice-cream for all passengers rounded out the end of a wonderful 2018 season!! Thanks you Mystic Sea!!
