Our July 21 Marine Wildlife Adventure was amazing. Capt. Scott took us east to Haro Strait and he spotted Transient Killer Whales. these were the T30’s, T75 with anther small group. They were milling around as we watched, slowly rising and them diving deep. Our crew of First Mate and Marine Biologist Mika and Naturalists Jen and Lindsay passed along a wealth of information on these magnificent apex predators and this diverse marine ecosystem. The Orca then started to head north up Haro Strait and we watched as the porpoised along in the flat calm water. On our back we stopped and observed many harbour seals basking on the seashore. Yet another great Marine Wildlife 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.
