Orca pod seen along Kupreanof
A pod of 7 Orca whales, including a juvenile, hunted for salmon along a tide rip near Beacon Point last Sunday afternoon. The group later continued west along the Kupreanof shoreline. Humpback whale sightings also are increasing as the mammals migrate back to Frederick Sound and other parts of Southeast following their winter stay in the waters around Maui, Hawaii. Twelve humpbacks were sighted the same day.
