Our Ocean Magic Marine Wildlife Adventure was set against clear blue skies and flat calm water. Our skipper Dave took us east past Trial island and North up Haro Strait. We caught up with a large group of Transient Orca. They were slowly making their way south, tightly grouped. It was truly a sight to see as they rose from the deep to break the surface. Our Naturalists Jeff and Jenn passed along a wealth of information on these apex marine predators. Our trip then took us back past Chatham and Discovery Islands. It was yet another great 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.
