The Resident Orcas of the San Juan Islands made an appearance for our kayak tour today. While observing the intertidal zone invertebrates just north of Half 'Moon Bay, the whales approached us from the south and put on a dazzling show with tail slaps, side-swimming, and even a few breaches. We also encountered many playful harbor seals, who danced alongside us in the bull kelp forests and did spins in our boat wakes through the eelgrass beds. The massive tidal exchange revealed many beautiful creatures during low tide, and a raccoon was seen foraging along the rocky shores. The calm, flat water made the journey all the more delightful!
