An Incredible Start to the 2016 Whale Watching Season

It’s only the beginning of May but the Salish Sea is a happenin’ place to be! From gray whales and sea lions to tufted puffins, minke, humpback and killer whales, it shows no signs of stopping.

Two days ago, the whales took us north into Haro Strait, which runs between the west side of San Juan Island and southern tip of Vancouver Island. It was there that we found two humpbacks as well as a small group of transient orcas, known as the T19’s, as well as T18, a female who travels with them.
