UPDATE: Gray whale off Alki

9:12 AM: Kersti Muul of Salish Wildlife Watch reports a gray whale is off Alki right now, just 100 yards out to sea “hugging the shoreline.” Let us know if you see it!

9:40 AM: Northbound, Kersti says, headed toward Duwamish Head at last report.

        Took me a while to get here, anyone seen it?

          I’m at Duwamish Head. Been looking with binoculars for 20 minutes. I haven’t spotted anything. Drats!

          I did see a marine mammal. It may just have been a seal doing barrel rolls, but it looked a heck of a lot like a dolphin.

    Iremembed a gray parked alongside my ferry commute at Vashon. I swear it was eyeballing me. Awesome to see one!

Sorry, comment time is over.
