Our 9:00 Ocean Magic was set against blue skies, sun and calm seas. Our Skipper Scott took us east to Middle Bank. Here we spotted Orca! These were members of J pod, fish eating Killer Whales. San Juan island. Here we caught up member’s of J Pod. These resident killer whales were spread out and working their way to False Bay, San Juan Island. We watched as they Breached, spy hopped, rolled, and fluked. It was yet another exceptional wildlife adventure with Prince of Whales!
Most of the images on the blog are shot with a 400 mm telephoto lens. Because of our restrictions around wildlife (100+ meters), we use powerful lenses to better share orca activity that passengers see on their trips. Keep in mind this also heavily compresses space between objects. We also crop images for best blog viewing.
