While driving home from work last night, I crossed the C Street Bridge heading into downtown Anchorage and glanced down at Ship Creek. Noticed that the water was high and something was creating a huge swirl mid-stream near a pair of seagulls.
Never saw what caused the wake, but figure it was probably a seal or sea lion. However, the more I replay the image in my mind and try to gage the magnitude of the disturbance in the way, I'm wondering whether it may have been caused by a beluga whale.
Have these creatures ever been observed in Ship Creek?
