West Seattle Whale Watch: Orcas back in the area

Second day in a row, the orcas are out there somewhere! Just like yesterday, a Bainbridge-Seattle state ferry spotted them – and Donna Sandstrom from The Whale Trail shared the news with us; they were headed southbound. So if you’re near the west-facing West Seattle shore, be on the lookout. We’ll add any updates we get.

    I’ve been at lowman beach for the last hour with binoculars and havent seen any. It’s windy and cold!

    No sightings at Duwamish Head either.

    I hear they are on the northwest side of vashon island now, just south of the southworth ferry terminal, which means just out of sight from west Seattle. Darn!

    They headed south along Blake Island from about 11:15 – 12:15. They were hard to see among the whitecaps, and were further west than yesterday. They continued heading southwest – last we saw they were headed down Colvos Passage (a somewhat unusual route…). Maybe see them on the return trip?

Sorry, comment time is over.
