What’s Happening at Anderson!


Northwest photographer Stu Davidson was cruising south Puget in his boat recently when we encountered this pair of Orcas just east of Anderson Island. Passengers on the Steilacoom to Anderson Island Ferry, be alert!

“I believe at this point I must have been at the south end of Andersen looking more south easterly across the mainland and obviously towards Mt Rainier. The day we found the Orcas in the South Sound we followed them heading south on the East side of Anderson and as they went all the the way around and back North on the West side of Anderson!”  What an exciting experience it is to see these highly intelligent whales in Puget Sound. Orca sightings are up substantially this year according to the Seattle Post Intelligencer. Thank you Stu for sharing your photo!
