WHALE-WATCHING UPDATE: Southbound orcas, visible from West Seattle

2:39 PM: Thanks to Kersti Muul for the tip – she reports southbound orcas off Bainbridge Island. She also notes this is at least the third consecutive year of orca sightings in this area on this date!

3:22 PM: Just heard from Donna Sandstrom of The Whale Trail. She says the orcas are off Blake Island, slowly heading south, visible from Me-Kwa-Mooks/Emma Schmiz Overlook (4500 block Beach Drive SW) if you use binoculars (she’s there now with some you can borrow!).

5:01 PM: Texter says they’re now northbound, passing Fauntleroy.
