Today we had an excellent tour aboard the Odyssey. We headed south out of Friday Harbor down San Juan Channel against the tide. We saw lots of seals and sea birds on our way out to the whales. We were lucky to catch up with them before False Bay and we encountered the J’s. There were lumpy seas off shore which caused Capt. Pete to bring us in closer to shore. We saw several members of J pod milling around fishing and drifting with the incoming northerly current. We had a close encounter with a fairly large bull. We identified him as J-26 or “Mike”. All in all a wonderful trip with the incoming tidal current to push us back to Friday Harbor on time. A big thanks to the guests and staff of San Juan Excursions for giving me a great day on the water.
