Ocean Magic II Marine Wildlife Adventure Sept 9

September 14, 2012

Our Ocean Magic II Marine Wildlife Adventure took us west, past Race Rocks Ecological Reserve and on to Sooke. Here our Skipper David put us in great position to view a Humpback Whale. This gentle giant rose up from the deep and would show its massive fluke when it would dive. We then took a tour of Race Rocks Ecological Reserve. Here we took in the sights of Stellar Sea Lions, California Sea Lions, Harbour Seals and a variety of Marine Birds. With the sun slowly going down we headed back into Victoria’s picturesque inner harbour to dock. Truly another amazing trip with Prince of Whales!

Most of the images on the blog are shot with a 400 mm & 600 mm telephoto lenses. 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.
