Cornucopia of San Juan Wildlife

Bit of a bumpy trip out toward Hein Bank, where orcas from all three pods foraging as they headed southeast across a strong flooding current, from about 1:20pm to 2pm. Multiple breaches, a cartwheel, and a 2 second headstand (flukes held in the air), by some of the youngsters distracted us from the confused seas! Our trip back up San Juan Channel revealed the cornucopia of wildlife with sightings of at least 20 Steller Sea Lions on Whale Rocks, Harbor Seals, Harbor Porpoise, and a Bald Eagle on Turn Island!
