Our Ocean Magic Wildlife Adventure took us west past Race Rocks and out into the Strait of Juan De Fuca. Here our skipper Jeff put us in excellent position to view a Humpback Whale. This gentle giant would take a few breaths on the surface, and then show its massive tail on a deep dive. We then toured Race Rocks Ecological Reserve and viewed Harbour Seals, Steller Sea Lions and a sea birds. It was yet another magical adventure on the water 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.
