Date Taken: March 18th, 2017
Vessel Name: San Juan Clipper 
Location: Near Edmonds, WA
Species: Transient Killer Whale Orcinus orca
Family Group: T36s and T99B
Individual(s): T36
Behavior: Surfacing
Notes: Today was the first day of our Gray Whale season! Sadly, I did not manage to get any photos of the Gray Whale we saw, but we were lucky enough to see some Transient Orcas too! Then, we topped off the day of wildlife viewing with a California Sea Lion in the harbor and a Harbor Seal pup hanging out on our dock. What a great way to start the season!

All I ask is that you please give me credit somewhere in or around the photo and do not sell prints of my photos! Thank you.

Thanks! I have heard residents have been around San Juan Island but our search area for Gray Whales is pretty much restricted to Whidbey Island to the south, so I have not seen them yet this year but many of my friends have!
