Last weekend I set out to the San Juan Islands with one goal: I wanted to see some whales. And not just any whales, I was on a mission to see Orcas (e.g. Killer Whales). I have always been captivated by these animals, but have never seen one in the wild. Fortunately for me (and anyone who shares my interest in marine mammals), Washington’s San Juan Islands are home to plenty of orca pods.
