It was another gorgeous Saturday in the Salish sea once again, and the 12:15 Ocean Magic II, with Capt Jeff in the wheelhouse. The crew set a course for the east, once out of the harbour. We traveled past Trail Island and headed south east to a report of Transient Orca. Capt. Jeff put us in excellent position to view these Apex Predators, mammal eating killer whales. Our expert Biologists on board, Mika , Casey and Jen, shared their knowledge of the marine life found here, with our many guests. 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.
