Today Captain Nancy and I had yet another magical trip on the M/V Seahawk. We left the dock at noon with reports of all three resident killer whale pods to the south. The Southern Resident population consists of 79 individuals spread across three pods (J, K & L) and when all of the pods are together we call that a SUPERPOD! On the way to the southern end of San Juan Island we located a humpback whale. We were the first boat in the whale watching fleet with the whale and got to spend some quality time alone with the beautiful animal. After spending a few minutes with the humpback we moved on to find the orcas around Heine Bank. We got to spend time watching the J22 matriline, especially J34 Doublestuf. We finished the trip with some great looks at a northern sea lion!
