Since June 1, marine mammal observers working for the ECHO Program have spotted humpback whales almost every day in Boundary Pass. Slow moving humpbacks are highly susceptible to vessel strikes. Mariners are encouraged to report all marine mammal sightings to the Whale Report app and to download the WhaleReport Alert System (WRAS) app to be informed of where whales are in order to reduce the potential for collision and disturbance. The WRAS app will send you a text whenever there is a whale is within 10nm of you. Find out more here.
