The J16 matriline is made up of Slick J16, her four offspring named Mike J26, Alki J36, Echo J42, and J50 (born in December of 2014!), and her grandson, J52 (born in March of 2015!). The family was spread out for the most part. Slick J16, Echo J42, and J50 stayed close to the shoreline while Mike J26, Alki J36, and J52 were more offshore. At one point, Alki J36 logged momentarily at the surface to get some rest and her son J52 did the cutest little spy hop next to her! Alki J36 then chose to bring her calf right past our bow. Soon after, the two of them met up with Mike J26 and he became the babysitter for a few minutes while Alki J36 took a deep dive to forage. J52 treated his uncle just like he would his mother and surfaced in his slip stream a few times!
