Our Ocean Magic Marine Wildlife Adventure was set against blue skies and calm seas. Our skipper Anthony took the Ocean magic south to reports of Transient Orca. These apex marine predators were milling around, it appeared they were feeding on something. As they milled about we had spy-hops and tail lobs, they put on a great show for our passengers. Then it was off to Race Rocks Ecological Reserve. Here we took in the sights of Stellar Sealions, California Sealions, Elephant Seals and Harbour Seals. Just another amazing Marine 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.
