The 3:30 Ocean Magic Wildlife Adventure was a spectacular trip. Our Capt. Gord took us east to San Juan Island where we were put in perfect position to view Killer Whales. These were the Orca of J Pod, resident killer whales. These fish eating killer whales were spread out, we watched several small groups of whales. They were many sy hops, and fluking. On our way back we stopped off at Chatham Island to view its unique west coast scenery. This was yet another great adventure 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.
