Orcas off Ebey's Landing

Ebey's Landing National Historical Reserve residents and visitors had a special treat twice this week as resident orca pods swam past Whidbey Island along the Admirality Inlet. The pods were heading south early in the week and passed by again heading north on Wednesday, October 21, 2009.

Observers at Fort Casey State Park had a great view of the pods as they passed leisurely by, hugging the Port Townsend side of the waterway.

The orcas have passed by several times this summer, including in July when Ebey's Landing National Historical Reserve Interpreter Lauren Gansemer snapped this phot of a J-Pod orca spy hopping near the Keystone Ferry landing.
