On the noon trip aboard the Ocean Magic we met up with the L12’s along the west side of San Juan Island. The whales were spread out foraging in a northerly direction. The 78 year-old female Oceansun / L25 was seen a bit further offshore and spouting male Skana / L79 was seen traveling with his mom Sprit / L22. In the afternoon, the whales were now heading back south still foraging and milling about Salmon Bank. We passed by the marker buoy and found some cormorant babies tucked away in nests.
