Monday - July 10, 2006
The noon trip on the Ocean Magic II was exciting to see the whales in the swells of the choppy sea. K pod was further north of Lime Kiln traveling south while J pod was further south heading north. Both family groups milled about and foraged in the area. The animals were quite dynamic by breaching in the active water. On the afternoon trip we met up with K pod traveling south off Stuart Island. Lummi the oldest southern resident female, 96 years old, was sighted as was Sequim / K12. Sequim’s youngest offspring Rainshadow / K37 was sighted proposing with Raven's new calf born last month K39.
