Tahoma (J-10) was named after the Coast Salish word for Mount Rainier. She was first photographed in 1972, at about ten years old, when she was temporarily captured in nets in Puget Sound. Tahoma (J-10) was well known and loved among whale enthusiasts, partly because she was such an excellent mother and grandmother. She was frequently seen interacting with her children and playing with her grandchildren.
