OMII Passengers

The noon trip on OMII brought us near Henry Island, San Juan Islands. There we found southern resident K pod, spread out, proposing south. Georgia / K11 was seen milling about the area. She is the only daughter of matriarch Lummi / K7, the oldest whale of the southern resident community at an estimated age of 96 years old. K38 was seen traveling at high speed with mom Spock / K20. Cappuccino / K41 was identified further offshore than the rest of the pod.
