Pod of orcas spotted off North Beach

Posted by Danielle Anthony-Goodwin on October 30th, 2013

20131030-144350.jpgMy Ballard reader Jen Clark emailed in to report the sighting of a pod of orca whales off North Beach at 11am this morning.

Clark reported that the whales were headed southbound north of Golden Gardens almost mid channel. “There were about a dozen breaching and tail slapping,” writes Clark.

Check out Clark’s photo above shot at about 11am with Kingston Edmonds ferries in the background.

If you were lucky enough to see the orcas email and let us know at
