Ocean Magic Marine Wildlife Adventure Aug 10

August 12, 2013

Our Ocean Magic Marine Wildlife Adventure took us east to San Juan Island. Here our Skipper Jeff put us in excellent position to view Orca. These were members of L Pod, Resident Killer Whales. They were spread out along the shoreline. We watched as they rose to the surface for a breath, sun sparkling off their backs. Salmon were jumping all over the area, as these Orca worked the water for their food. Our crew of Casey (First Mate/Naturalist), Jenn (Biologist/Naturalist) and Claire (Naturalist) filled our passengers with information on these majestic Killer Whales. Our Skipper then took us to view Harbour Seals, basking on the rocks. Yet another amazing marine adventure 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.
