I saw these while out in PWS last week. They followed me around for 1/2 an hour. Also saw several humpbacks, a gang of about 8 sea lions cruising and 2 black bears. Didn't see a single otter....where do they go? I caught an octopus but am such a pathetic fisher/shrimper that it ended up as dinner instead of bait. Winds leaving Whittier were 25 kts but it was very nice after I left Passage canal. Glad I went...nice 2 day trip.
