Back to Transient Orca today and Dalls Porpoises

The big excitement yesterday were the Southern Resident Orca in our area - not a common sight. They were last seen still Southbound aroun 6 pm off Cape Mudge, but nothing today. Today, we're back to Transient Orca with a couple Dalls Porpises keeping out of their way. Photos for yesterday's Southern Resident Orca below.

4:30 pm overheard a report of Orca by Francisco Point, by Campbell River heading South. Both AJ and Jack found them shortly after the report. Jack identified T20, T21 pluse 3 others including a young calf for a total count of 5 Transient Orca. He left them crossing Whidbey Shoals headed North around 5:45 pm
