April 29th, we had some awesome visitors at Glen Ayr – Dolphins! What an amazing sight! This family of Pacific White Sided dolphins made their way to the Hood Canal. A local resident tipped us off to a sighting, we headed over to our dock at Glen Ayr Resort on Hood Canal, and there they were, swimming about 10 feet from us! They put on quite the show for us and our guests.
White-sided dolphins swim in groups of 10 to 100 and are extremely active, they readily approach boats for bow-rides. The range of the Pacific white-sided dolphin arcs across the cool temperate waters of the north Pacific. While they enjoy California in Winter, they often enjoy the cool Pacific waters of Washington and Oregon in the Spring and Summer.
The dock at Glen Ayr Resort on Hood Canal is the perfect place to enjoy the views of Hood Canal, and if you’re lucky, you may even see a dolphin!
