Center staff encountered J pod a few miles north of Turn Point at 1:30 p.m. The J22's, and J17's were in a tight group milling off Bedwell Harbour. All the J's later grouped up and were travelling very close to shore off Pender Island, B.C. Due to unfavorable weather and boat conditions the encounter ended at 2:55 p.m. The J's continued to travel north up Boundary Pass.
