ORCAS: Whales off West Seattle again

10:05 AM: For a second day, orcas are in view off West Seattle. Donna Sandstrom of The Whale Trail just sent word that they’re southbound off Alki Point. Let us know if you see them!

10:20 AM: Jeff Hogan from Killer Whale Tales just called with an update – they’re now off Emma Schmitz Overlook, still southbound.

11:52 AM: Kersti Muul from Salish Wildlife Watch says in comments that they’ve turned around and are now northbound.

    Whales have flipped NB and unfortunately surrounded by boats. WE boats are beacons, NOT sentinels. Passing restoration point

      Thank you for the update. We had no luck looking from Emma Schmitz, but always fun to at least try.
