The Ocean Magic 2 vessel left Victoria at 12:15 Saturday afternoon with Capt. Scott in the wheelhouse. Crew members, Mika and Liz and Dan discussed with our guests the variety of wildlife that could be seen on any of ‘Prince of Whales ‘ adventures. This afternoon we headed east in search Orca that had been reported in Boundary Pass. We found members of J Pod Orca that were foraging and headed west. We saw breaching, spyhops, tail slaps and sharking. This was yet another perfect afternoon on the water with Prince of Whales!
Most of the images on the blog are shot with a 400 mm telephoto lens. 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.
