UPDATE: Orcas in our area

11:18 AM: The photo and report are from Kersti Muul: Orcas southbound off south Bainbridge Island, so they could be visible off west-facing West Seattle with binoculars. Let us know if you see them!

3:39 PM: Now they’re northbound, says Kersti – most recently reported between Blake and Bainbridge Islands.

    T65As and subgroup of the 137s are now passing through the Vashon ferry lanes. SB west channel but very visible multiple whale watch boats on scene including one parked right in front of them. One group is tightly together others scattered pictures from 65 A’s as they’re passing Tillicum village

    Yes, I see them. They are now at the north end of Vashon Island.

      … on the water. Land-based whale-watching, no problem.

Sorry, comment time is over.
