Orca Whale Bart Rulon Blackberry
7/15/2010: We didn't have to go far to find whales today. Within thirty minutes of leaving the dock we spotted some orcas swimming southward in Rosario Strait. It was J-pod, and by the time we met up with them they were south of Bird Rocks. They were very surface active from the get go. As we arrived we saw one spyhop after another from adults as well as calves. Soon we also started seeing several breaches and cartwheels too. We ended up seeing more spyhops today than I've seen on any trip this year.
