Come learn about these amazing orcas who live in the Salish sea in the pacific northwest in the US. Take a moment to tag your favorite whale, take a quick quiz to learn about these majestic creatures and play our fun matching game!

Love the App

The app hadn’t come in the store yet when I visited the San Juan Islands. But to be honest I didn’t need to use the app then because we didn’t see any of the resident whales. That doesn’t mean I won’t come back and I hope the whales are coming back, too. So I downloaded the app and toyed around with it whenever the CWR posted a new encounter. And I definitely LOVE the app.

From the way this app works I can see it’s designed for such encounters with the resident orcas. But I think it’d make the app even better if we can check out the dorsal fin and saddle of a whale by searching the whale’s name, e.g. J35. Loved the photo gallery and the encounters, too. Hope more whale-watchers use this app and support their efforts.

This apps the best!

I didn’t have this app when we went to the San Juan’s, but when I go back, and see southern residents, maybe I’ll be able to identify them, thanks to this handy app!
