Encounter #26 - Superpod

Encounter # 26 • June 2 1• Superpod!

Platform: Orca, Starlet
Observers: Ken Balcomb, Howard Garrett, Erin Heydenreich, Emma Foster and Basil Von Ah

After watching several whales pass by the Center and receiving various reports of more whales up north, both Orca and Starlet departed. At approximately 4:10 p.m. both vessels encountered J, K, and L pods travelling in tight groups up Boundary Pass. It appears that all members of the three pods were present, totaling 86 whales. The encounter ended at 6:30 p.m. The whales were traveling tight in two groups and continued north up Boundary Pass.
