WHALES: Opportunity for orca viewing at sunset

8:11 PM: With just enough daylight left to offer a chance to see them, orcas are in the area. Kersti Muul just sent word that “transients, including the rarely seen T72 with a rolled dorsal fin, are heading south/southwest from Elliott Bay.” Let us know if you see them!

ADDED: If you didn’t see it in comments, here’s the photo Ian posted of T72:

    Yes!  We saw them coming back on the ferry from Bainbridge at 8:05. :)

    We saw them from Alki.  We saw the Ferry stopped and wondered if it was orcas and sure enough.

    Saw the orca with the rolled dorsal fin from the ferry around 8.
