Three whales missing from the T65As and T99s in San Juan Channel

September 16th 2016 – Transient orcas known as T65A’s and T99’s were traveling up San Juan Channel. However, three of their family members weren’t present: T65A3 and T65A4 plus T99B. These three orcas were seen the next day at the south end of San Juan Channel. The day after that they were all back together again. We also spotted a minke whale – double hitter!  And a family of four river otters on Flattop Island while the harbor seals basked in the remaining sunlight before the sun went down.
