The afternoon trip on the Ocean Magic II led us out to Boundary Pass. There we found J and K pods heading west toward Turn Point where there were reportedly members of L pod. The whales were traveling at a slow pace playing amongst the kelp along the way. Princess Angeline / J17 and her daughter Polaris / J28 were both identified. Good news from Ken and Kelly Balcomb, as the new K pod baby was seen with new mom Sekiu / K22. In the evening the whales were further south along the west side of Henry and San Juan Islands. The whales picked up speed as they passed Open Bay. Spock / K20 and her two year old, K38, were seen porpoising together toward Lime Kiln lighthouse.
