Yet another double header! The first sighting was from our deck. I spotted a lone humpback very close to Annette Island. I watched it surface three times before it dove and disappeared. No pics.
Around noon we launched our boat at Mountain Point and started heading south. I immediately spotted dorsal fins straight across from Mountain Point near Annette Island. The pod of orcas were slowly moving north, staying close to Annette Island. We got to see them do a couple of tail slaps as they moved along. We last saw them out in Nichols Passage. These orcas have been identified as the A30s. They are resident (fish eaters) orcas. Multiple individuals were identified. Many thanks to Northern Resident Orca Population (see their Facebook page under the "Links" tab) for identifying these whales.
Late in the evening another humpback was spotted from our deck. We briefly saw it surface once and then it disappeared. No pics.
