Family photo of K42 Kelp along with mother K14 Lea and sister K36 Yoda taken off of the West Side on yesterday’s whale watch and wildlife tour by Naturalist Kevin. The salmon are having a great run, and we have been spotting whales on the west side often this season! With a deep underwater canyon, the West Side makes for perfect hunting grounds. An adult male orca can eat up to 400lbs of salmon a day, which means there needs to be a lot of fish to keep these orcas happy. Luckily, this season has seen great salmon numbers!
I hope you are having a great day!
