West Seattle whale-watching: Sightings off Duwamish Head

If you’re out on the West Seattle shore this morning, be on the lookout for at least one whale! Both David and Jim have sent reports of sightings off Duwamish Head in the past two hours. Likely humpbacks, but no photo so we don’t know for sure. The Whale Trail‘s website has a species guide that might be helpful if you see a marine mammal are trying to identify it.

    A little over a week ago around 8:30 am, I and many others saw a mother humpback (I believe) and her calf off of Alki (across from Cactus) put on an amazing show, repeatedly jumping out of the water.  Thrilling!

    We were on the water taxi heading to the Mariners game yesterday when the skipper pointed out a humpback whale. We only saw one, but it was great. It didn’t breach, but it dove down so could see the tail. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
