Covering the natural wonders of the Pacific Northwest

Sharks, dolphins, birds and whales: weird visitors to Puget Sound

After researchers last week documented two long-beaked dolphins swimming in waters near Olympia, we decided to check out the unusual creatures that have appeared in recent years in the Northwest.

We found documented visits by marlin and mackerel, leopard sharks and Bryde’s whales, and a crazy round beast called an Ocean sunfish. We spoke to a woman who helped rescue a tropical brown booby that leapt onto a crab boat along the Washington coast. And then there are the tales great white sharks.

Check out the story here.

Let us know in the comments on this blog post or in the story comments what unusual creatures you or your friends and family have encountered during your travels in the Pacific Northwest.
