EncSummary:

Sequence 02: Shortly after departing the residents off Everest, Joe spotted another couple of killer whales offshore of Camper Creek or Carmanah Point. They altered offshore and photographed K20 with young K45 at 1650. K34 was near, as was J39, and J37 with her own youngster, J59, were also westbound with the spread. Enough ID photos were collected over the next few minutes to suggest that likely all of J and K pods were present, but long dives and another multiple-mile spread made collecting photos for each individual impractical. The crew ended the encounter at 1711 and made way for Port San Juan.
