West Seattle whale-watching: More humpback sightings

ORIGINAL REPORT, 5:53 AM: Andrew reports a humpback off Alki this morning – spotted near 57th SW [map], “and it looked like it was heading toward the Bay.” One was seen off Fauntleroy Monday morning and evening, as reported here (with video added last night).

6:26 PM: See comments for other later sightings – and right now we have e-mail of a sighting northbound off Beach Drive, Cormorant Cove most recently.

      Thanks for the sighting update! Wish I could go hop on the ferry to look.

    If anyone has the day off and wishes to see it, board a ferry to Southworth. It is just hanging out a little ways North of terminal. Can you call WSF and let them know it is close to dock?

    Paddled last night during sunset off colman pool for about 45min with menke whale not gray whale. Dorsel fin made it obvious

      Which reminds me that The Whale Trail has a handy species ID page:

      That was a humpback off Lincoln Park last night, likely the same one being reported this morning.

    Wondering if I should head down now? If it is still in sight? I am on the bus about 20 minutes away.

Sorry, comment time is over.
