The 9 am Ocean Magic Adventure was a wonderful trip. Our Skipper Gord took us east to San Juan Island, here near Lime Kiln Light House we found members of K Pod, resident Killer Whales spread out and foraging for salmon. We got great views of Raggedy K40 and Cappuccino K21. Our Marine Biologist Mika and Naturalists Mckyla and Brandon answered many questions and filled out guests with information on the amazing mammals. Just another perfect 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.
