West Seattle whale-watching: Orcas off Lincoln Park

12:18 PM: Whale-watching alert on this sunny Sunday: Orcas are back in central Puget Sound and headed southbound past West Seattle – Trileigh Tucker just called from Lincoln Park, where she has them in view.

12:33 PM: Donna Sandstrom from The Whale Trail just called with an update; she’s also watching the orcas from Lincoln Park and says they are headed “slowly south” – they’re now south of the Fauntleroy-Vashon ferry lane.

ADDED EARLY MONDAY: Alisa Lemire Brooks, expert whale-watcher and photographer, shared this video via the Orca Network Facebook page, from the Sunday visit:

    Yet again… Orcas win! I get a day to sleep in and enjoy a late start to the day and they new it so they swam by and I missed them. One of these days Orcas!!… One of these DAYS!!.. I will see you out there swimming, breaching, spy hopping and having a great Orca time :) Happy day for those who got to see them today. Such magnificent and amazing animals. We are so lucky to have them right in our back yards.

    Someone just posted on OrcaNetwork that they’re straight across from Normandy Beach, still heading south. Which means they’ll be headed back up our way, maybe later today or possibly tomorrow. Keep a lookout!

    Sorry for the double post, but I thought folks might like to know that NOAA has confirmed that this is K Pod visiting us today.

    Hopefully they’re eating all the seals.

      Sorry, these are residents. They don’t eat seals (or sea lions, etc.). They eat fish.
