    Confirming Jpod as I heard S1, S4, S10 and S16 calls on the vashon hydrophone. What a wonderful addition that is to our experience to have that camera and hydrophone ❤️https://youtu.be/b8xTL-e6iYg

    Just watched them pass through Redondo area heading South (with good binoculars) around 2:20.

    The magic continued today! I believe I also saw a gray whale close to the Redondo shore about 4:15 while I was looking for the J pod orcas to head back north. My heart is full. ❤️
