We departed Snug Harbor at 10:30 AM and headed out to join up with a few members of L pod past South Beach on the South West side of San Juan Island. We picked up most of L pod at Davidson Rock in south Rosario Strait. We had a few great set ups where 5-6 individuals were grouped up side to side with nice calm water and some light wind. After sampling for most of the day, we returned to Snug Harbor just after 5 PM.
