Whale Watching in Puget Sound

The waters of Puget Sound are home to a resident pod of Orca whales, I got to go out and see a few of them on a whale watching trip recently with Island Mariner Cruises that left right out of Bellingham's Squalicum Harbor. They have the largest well watching boat in the Pacific Northwest, the Island Caper. The boat had your typical table and chair set up as most large boats do but they also had a room with couches and overstuffed chairs like a large living room.

It was a beautiful warm sunny day, a great day to be on the water closing around the San Juan Islands and looking for whales. And we saw lots of them, we see three or four a few hundred yards away, and that there be some more of the other side of the boat, and then a few of them got closer, and once one right up close to the boat. What a treat it was to see the ocean mammals up close and personal. I wish I had some better pictures for your but there's lots of pictures of whales available on the net, but I did do a little video of the trip to get a little bit of an idea of what was like. If you haven't been out of the tour it's a great thing to do, there is a very knowledgeable naturalist on board keeping you informed about whales and other sea life and birds and history of the islands along the way.

Very nice.  I am in Turks and Caicos now and got to see some Dolphin today.  Love the marine life.
