Orca Whales Amazing Presence in the San Juan Islands 2014

0

It has been a spectacular year for seeing orca whales in the San Juan Islands!  Many of our guests return from whales watching trips or from LimeKiln State Park, “Whale Watch Park” and have wonderful stories of seeing mother and baby orcas feeding together or some orcas putting on a breaching and jumping show.  Stay with us at Harrison House Suites and have a chance to see the orca whales this season!

J pod arrived in the Salish Sea May 29, followed soon by some of L pod members June 3 and a month later on July 2 K pod showed up. So for well over a month now some combination of J pod with Ks and/or Ls has been found almost every day shuffling up and down the west side of San Juan Island or points north into Georgia Strait. Reports have been filled with wonder and appreciation for the opportunity to witness these whales’ graceful moves and intense socializing.

Transients/Bigg’s whales are still here as well, mainly near Victoria and Nanaimo.
