We set out on this perfect October day in search of 2 transient killer whales; T20 and T21. We caught up to them traveling eastward in the Juan de Fuca Strait not far from the southern portion of San Juan island. The mother and son pair were observed in traveling mode. We headed westward in search of humpback whales and sealions. We arrived to find 1 small humpback 2 miles west of the Race Rocks ecological reserve. The animal was shallow diving, and seemed very calm. No activity from this youngster on our trip! On our way home, we stopped in at Race Rocks and checked out the seals and sealions hauled out on the rocks. Today’s weather was picture perfect which gave passengers an awesome opportunity to capture the epic scene west coast natural world and the wildlife that resides within it. I hope this weather holds up!
