Humpback in Admiralty Inlet earlier this morning: Sat Aug 17 - My husband saw a humpback (initially reported as orca) this morning while fishing at Point No Point. It rounded the point from the south and was heading west towards Hansville. Follow up: Thanks for asking those clarifying questions. After talking to him more he’s pretty confident that it was a humpback, did not have the right orca dorsal fin...I’m not sure exactly, but he was there between 5:30 and 7:30 this morning.Krisandra Allen07:20 - Hi All, Humpback west of Point No Point lighthouse 7:20am, just offshore at Hansville, heading west towards skunk bayThanks, Patti MichakREMINDERS: - Please slow to under 7 knots at first sign of any whale. - Maintain minimum distance of 100 yards from Humpbacks. - #BeWhaleWise link & other info in comments.#OrcaNetwork #PugetSoundHumpbacks #HumpbackWhales #SalishSeaHumpbacks ...
