Just (around 5 pm) looked off our deck and a pod of Orcas was passing. We figured there were at least 3 but an ecotourism boat out of Lund thought there were more. Maybe 5 or 6. I think one was smaller than the others. They were between us and the top end of the Copelands, not 50 yards away. We watched them until they passed Bliss when they seemed to disappear but they were obviously headed up to Sarah Point area. There was a small aluminum boat watching them which got pretty close and may have scared them down.
3:30 pm The second group of around 6 - 8 Orca were spotted by Dinner Rock, just South of Lund heading in a Northerly direction.

1 pm till around 5 pm one group of 6 Transient Orca were found around the Francisco Point, Sutil Channel area and very slowly made their way only as far as between the Breton and Read Islands.

On July 9th around 2 PM K-Pod headed south past Lime Kiln. K21 was among the leaders and gave two huge breaches a little
Both days there were rumors that it was a superpod heading towards San Juan Island from up north, and obviously that didn't quite materialize on either day. I'll be interested to see other reports to figure out where the Ls and Js ended up!
