Another great day on the water for the M/V Sea Lion’s passengers and crew! It started off a little daunting when the fog bank had yet to clear before our afternoon trip, but Captain Craig timed it perfectly! Once we passed the southern tip of San Juan Island the fog bank cleared and it was smooth sailing till we arrived on scene with a few members of L Pod.
Our afternoon trip got to witness excellent foraging displays by the L-12′s, who were constantly corraling their prey below the surface. It was a great opportunity to witness their feeding displays in action!
However, it wasn’t till our evening trip that we got a more intimate look at L-88, Wave Walker! Wave walker is a mature male, who was born in 1993, and seemed to have taken a liking to the M/V Sea Lion. He gave passengers aboard a multitude of excellent looks and even followed our general trajectory as we motored away. I don’t think anyone aboard walked away without a great shot to share with family and friends back home!
Overall it was a great trip for both our afternoon and evening trips and I can’t tell how great it feels to see some black and whites back in the area!
