Our 9am Ocean Magic Wildlife Adventure took us West past Race Rocks Ecological Reserve to Beechy Head. Here our veteran Skipper Scotty put us in excellent position to view Killer Whales. These were members of K and L pods, resident (fish eating) Orca. We followed along offshore of these majestic Killer Whales as they made their way towards Race Rocks. Just perfect viewing conditions. We then took a tour through Race Rocks Ecological Reserve. Here we saw many variety’s of sea birds and many Harbour Seals. Just a perfect way to experience the wonders of Vancouver Islands marine wildlife 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.
