(Thanks to Shannon for sharing this photo via the WSB Facebook page)
2:54 PM: If you missed seeing them earlier this week – those two orcas are back in the area again, just passing Alki Point moments ago and headed south. Thanks to the tipster who sent word of this; the Orca Network Facebook page also has sightings reports, and mentions that NOAA has been tracking them, so you might be able to spot them by looking for a research boat. Please let us know if/where/when you see them!

ADDED 10:21 PM: Thanks to Trileigh Tucker for two more orca photos – above and below this line.

  1. Yes! Can see them now, north of Blake island, heading south. The research boat is a good tip- look for the guy standing on a raised viewing post.

  2. Now they are near Tillicum Village. There might be just two orcas.

  3. Thanks, Lura! By Orca Network page discussion etc., sounds like it’s those same two male transients who’ve been in the area for at least a week.
