A very brief sighting from our front window. The pod quickly went by as they headed toward the bridge that connects Douglas Island to Juneau. Approximately ten minutes later they went by again heading back toward Sandy Beach. It was early in the morning and the sun had not hit the channel, therefore, my photos are grainy due to lighting issues and distance.
These orcas have been identified as residents.
I spotted a spout from the west side of Douglas Island. The whale (assuming a humpback) appeared to be near Young Bay by Admiralty Island. I was standing on the shore and was only able to see the spout. I also spotted what I believe were Dall's porpoise. There were several sea lions in the area as well.
