Muncher L91 and L122 then moved slowly North and were joined by Skagit K13, her daughter Deadhead K27, and grandson Ripple K44. The five of them then briefly porpoised North towards Bellevue Point. Muncher L91's younger brother, Mystic L115, soon joined the group and porpoised along with them while Marina L47, mother to Muncher L91 and Mystic L115 and grandmother to L122, surfaced nearby. Offshore, Scoter K25 foraged by himself. Mother and calf then split off from the group and headed offshore. Mystic L115 and Ripple K44 followed and joined them briefly again a little later. The two young males were a little rambunctious but Muncher L91 and L122 didn't seem to mind. Mystic L115 tail slapped and Ripple K44 spy hopped and then they split off to roll around with each other somewhere else. We left Muncher L91 and L122 about a mile West of Bellevue Point.
We then aimed offshore toward Hein Bank and found super spread out orcas headed Southwest. We spotted Cappuccino K21 foraging off by himself first, then young males Notch J47 and Kelp K42 messing around together with Lea K14, Lobo K26, and Yoda K36 nearby. Further offshore, we found Matia L77, and then Samish J14, Suttles J40, Pooka L106, and Joy L119 in a social group. Adult male Solstice L89 soon joined them. Suttles J40 tail slapped and young male Pooka L106 flirted with her. We then found Blackberry J27, Mako J39, Se-Yi'-Chn J45, and Surprise L86 socializing nearby. Mako J39 tail slapped and Blackberry J27 showed off his sea snake.
We then headed over to another small group in the distance, which was made up of Shachi J19, Tsuchi J31, Eclipse J41, and J51. We then found Pooka L106 and Suttles J40 again, and Ti'lem I'nges J49 had joined them. Nearby, Princess Angeline J17, Polaris J28, Moby J44, and Star J46 surfaced together. Lobo K26 also popped up again, and so did Notch J47 and Kelp K42, with Tahlequah J35 nearby.
