Will keep an eye out. Is there a best shore viewing area? Langley?

Langley, Clinton, Kayak Point, or Camano Island State Park are all possibilities. The whale watching boats are good for locating them.

That's soooo cool! I'm crossing my fingers for some whale action in Barkley Sound this weekend. I'd love to stop by Whidbey and see a grey whale sometime soon too!

Thanks for the info! :)

Gray whales

I have been fascinated by whales ever since rowing into a pod of Orca as a teenager nearly 60 years ago. I am watching gray whales spout from my home on Possession Sound. Yesterday I got a chance to watch them from a boat with a couple of whale researchers. They were young, enthusiastic, and gracious with an old man. They could identify individuals since the same 10 whales have been pulling out of the northern migration and hanging around the bay at this time of year for several migrations. Grays are not as photogenic as humpbacks or orca since they rarely breach or spy-hop. This particular whale surfaced next to the boat, they identified it as "383", a young male. It's as good as I could do. If you enjoy whales, they will be between Everett and Langley for the next couple of months.
