We’ve seen video of Orca whales coming close to docks on Whidbey Island, Gray whales feeding near shore on Camano Island and heard reports of a Humpback making a show off Richmond Beach. With everyone staying home during the COVID-19 crisis, do the whales miss us?

I recently had the opportunity to sit down and chat (via Zoom) with members of Puget Sound Express whale watching company in Washington state and talk about what the whales are up to while we’re all in quarantine.

Have a watch and let us know if you have any Whale Tales of your own to add to the story …
