PHOTOS: Evening orca sighting!

6:16 PM: Just in from Kersti Muul: “Large group of transient orcas has been southbound and some are now south of West Point – just east of mid-channel.” That means they’re passing through the entrance to Elliott Bay. Let us know if you see them!

(Added: Photos by David Hutchinson)

6:20 PM: Update from Kersti – orcas are now heading into the bay.

6:40 PM: See comments for updates.

10:06 PM: Added two photos above, courtesy of David Hutchinson, who says they were “taken near the west end of the Alki promenade and from Constellation Park.”

ADDED TUESDAY: Photo from James Tilley:

    Just saw one to two groups southbound from the north tip of Alki, pretty far for the naked eye but not impossible to see

    I saw one surface in center channel just off Lincoln Park at 7:25 (roughly). Heading south. Some very lucky kayakers saw it closer.

    Hey, I’ve heard that there is a text group that Kersti runs…anyone know how to join that?  It’s so frustrating to miss these sightings!!

Sorry, comment time is over.
