The weather was cool and overcast, but the wildlife was spectacular. Capt. Scott took us east to whale rock, here we took in the sights of Steller Sea Lions, Harbour Seals, and many Cormorants. Our skipper then took us a short distance to view Killer Whales. These were members of K and L pods. Resident Orca, the fish eaters. We viewed these majestic Orca as they worked their way towards San Juan Island. Such a great sight to see them as the spy-hopped, breached and tail slapped. Our guests were all smiles after yet another great 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.
