WHALES: Transient orcas in view from West Seattle, northbound

1:36 PM: Since Puget Sound dead-ends, if whales swim by southbound, they’ll eventually have to head back northbound … and that’s what’s happening right now. Kersti Muul of Salish Wildlife Watch says transient orcas are northbound right now, visible from west-facing West Seattle (after swimming the other way yesterday) – look toward Southworth. Let us know if you see them!

2:04 PM: Kersti reports in a comment that they’re now off Blake Island.

    I saw 2 or 3 orcas headed southbound around 3pm from Lincoln Park looking toward Southworth. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
