I had responded to Jeff’s question and then somehow got your email. We saw one last year in the same area! Sorry if that was confusing. Carlos on Whidbey

Was it definitely a sea otter or perhaps a river otter in the sea (much more common around here)? If it was a positive ID for a sea otter (esp if you have pics), WA Fish and Wildlife would like to know (via their reporting form: https://wdfw.wa.gov/species-habitats/species/enhydra-lutris-kenyoni)
River otters spend a lot of time in the saltwater of the Salish Sea. They tend to swim face down whereas Sea Otters float on the backs.

> We saw a sea otter Sunday evening, not far from Anacortes, at Bird Rocks. I was under the misimpression that there were no sea otters in the area. From the little I've read, it sounds like they are making a comeback in this area but are mostly found around the Olympic coast. It was interesting to see one pretty close to town, in Rosario Strait. Have others seen them around?
