surprising all! Thought to have gone west on Friday, we were surprised and delighted to spend the day with them south of San Juan Island.
It seems they are here to stay as they have been seen several times this last week. Yea!

I thought I would post this in light of Jpod's recent return to the area this spring.
This season (2006) I will use the "You Tube" to blog video of our orca sightings. Will be a really exciting way to share up to date motion picture of the orcas we see on our trips! You can expect photos AND video! :D
This video clip was taken last summer from the 5 Star catamaran boat. This is only a small sample of what is to come. Stay tuned.

We were very glad to observe them eating and so far it appears they all animals are accounted for. Or at least thats what they are saying on the marine radio.
Great great day!

another Male of similar age and a nine year old whale of unknown sex. Perhaps he's playing tour guide. If I was a gambling man I'd bet $100 Canandian dollars that the young animal turns out to be a "sprouter" soon. Perhaps we'll see him again in the future, leading his own family through T-14's old territory.

from an old expert. T-14 (Pender) has been known in the inside waters for many many years and most likely has a lot to teach.

experience. Transient Orca sightings make up less than 10% of out total trips each year. Those who actually observe a Transient Orca predation encounter are in even rarer company. Today we saw two Orca - Seal encounters with well fed Orca being the result.
