Ah cool! Well, we were out there that day but apparently we weren't out there in the right place/right time. Part of the challenge is being just one boat in the huge ocean where what you're looking for could be anywhere from CA to AK.@adamcu280, Date would have been May 15, I don't have the exact location, but I ran into them on my way due west from Tatoosh, I think about 5 miles west of table top. . .pick a spot. . . say 12 miles due west of Tatoosh on my way to a favorite reef. There were at least 3 animals, one a big male (tall dorsal), I didn't take it off step to watch them, just made a mental note and kept on going. It was about 7:30am. There was a patch of life out there, in that spot, tons of birds, feed all over the meter, a humpback, even a couple sealions, which I thought was odd for being that far off.
Are the South Sound orca's around here the last few weeks likely transients?
Given the other marine life out there that could easily be T prey, you probably saw fish eaters.
The Gs we saw on the 10th were pretty spread out when we first saw them so if you were just cruising by the 10 animals we saw could have easily been three. For all we know we only saw a fraction of the total animals in the area. We only had a couple hours and couldn't follow them into Canada.
Sorry, yes, all the animals that have been seen in South Sound are mammal eaters. It's been a big spring for them.
