It certainly was an afternoon to be on the water. The sun was out and the conditions relatively calm. First we took a tour of Race Rocks Ecological Reserve. Here we observed Stellar Sea Lions, California Sea Lions, Harbour Seals and Bald Eagles. Capt Scott and his crew Mika and Liz then headed the vessel north up Haro Strait to Turn Point. Here we found Members of L Pod, salmon eating Resident Orca were heading north east towards Boundary Pass. It was truly a magical trip with glimpses of our favourite whales, the Orca.

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.
