J K L pods
The noon trip on the Ocean Magic II lead us out west to meet up with members of L pod. As we watched the whales near the Sooke Basin the animals changed direction and headed back out west through the swells of the open ocean. We stopped at Race Rocks, on the way home, to view the Steller sea lions and harbour seals hauled out on the rocks. On the afternoon trip we found J and K pods with a few members of L pod mixed in heading north off San Juan Island. The few rain showers lifted creating a beautiful end to a spectacular day with the whales.
