Are you sure its mid-June?

A foggy, chilly, but lovely & glassy day out on the water on the west end of the channel... You would almost think its mid-July here by the number of whales seen today... Blue Whales - at least 30 with lots blows everywhere in the distance, Humpback Whales - at least 15 with lots blows in the distance, a dozen Pacific White Sided Dolphins, and about 800-1000 Common Dolphins (total of 3 groups)...

Lots of tail flukes, surprisingly from Blue Whales, and I stopped counting at 22 flukes. The Humpbacks, as always, did tail flukes. :)
