ORCAS: Your first 2023 chance to whale-watch!

12:09 PM: Just texted by Kersti Muul: “New Year’s whales!” Transient orcas are headed north toward The Arroyos, closer to this side of the channel, and she says, “The water is really beautiful for viewing today, flat and calm, misty with a little bit of sun.” Let us know if you see them!

12:28 PM: Kersti says they’re approaching Brace Point.

    Whales are unfortunately moving northwest, in the Fauntleroy to Southworth ferry Lanes.NOAA research boat presence on water has stopped the boat from chasing them… So at least there’s that lol
