KWTales heads to the San Juans for another field season

Today, I spent most of the day heading north to the San Juan Islands.  Luckily I hopped aboard the NOAA research boat Phocena II, instead of slogging through on the WA State ferries.  The Phocena II is a 27′ inflatable zodiac and it gave me a comfortable ride for the two and a half hour journey between Seattle and Friday Harbor.

It was a pretty uneventful trip, although I did see a number of harbor porpoise on the way.

If you are interested in the study that we are doing, you can click here, for the full story.

Tomorrow will be a busy day getting the boat and gear ready, not to mention ourselves.

I will update this page daily, so check back if you are interested!
