ORCAS: Evening whale-watching from West Seattle

(Added 8:57 pm, photo by Jamie Kinney)

6:12 PM: Thanks to Jay for the tip! He says orcas just passed Dilworth on Vashon Island’s eastern shore, northbound, so they could be visible soon from west-facing West Seattle.

7:02 PM: Eastbound – toward West Seattle! – in the Fauntleroy ferry lanes, says Kersti Muul.

    They’re pretty close to the ferry terminal from my view at Alki.

      Which ferry terminal? Vashon or Fauntleroy?

    I hope the ferries were careful and the whales had a safe passage!

    I hope so too.   Our Orca’s are pretty Ferry and Boat lane smart.  They look both ways.   Not so sure about Humbacks and Gray’s.

Sorry, comment time is over.
