Entrance to Admiralty Inlet

Encounter Summary: 

As we left Victoria Harbour at 12:15 we got a report of several killer whales moving quickly northbound in Admiralty Inlet near Double Bluff off Whidbey Island. We found the whales still heading north finishing off a kill north of Port Wilson. They later continued grouped up heading west traveling at about 8 knots for the next 30 minutes. We left them west of Eastern Bank westbound.
