WHALE OF A TRIP

Map of Whale Trail sites

Ferry and Terminal poster
Up in the northwest is the State of Washington and the famous Washington State Ferry System.  During the trips between the Salish Sea islands and mainland there is something new and interesting to do - other than trying to keep warm.  In the Fall the orcas travel in Puget Sound and the Washington State Ferries and Whale Trail have developed a poster which will be displayed both on board the ferries and in the Terminals. 


The signs provide descriptions of orcas, gray whales, Dall's porpoise, harbor seals and California sea lions.  It also explains the habitat needed for the mammals to remain healthy in the region.  the Whale Trail has established 20 sites in Puget Sound, the Strait of Juan de Fuca and the Washington coast and more are planned.


Shown above is a map of those sites and the poster displayed on board the Ferries and in the Terminals.  So if you ride the WSF have a whale of a trip.

"Develop a discerning eye in all matters."

Good Watch

Read the Somalia Report to get the latest piracy news from the Horn of Africa and remember 400 of our fellow seafarers are held captive by pirates off the coast of Somalia.
