With the kayaker in the background, this picture provides a great indicator of how large Orcas can get, especially male Orcas who can have dorsal fins as tall as 6 foot, can reach up to 30 feet long and can weight 9-10 Tons!
For the second evening in a row our two boats, Supercat and Fast cat ventured out in the evening and once again we caught up with Jpod near Andrew's Bay (nope it isn't named after me or belong to me, I wish).
This evening we had all of J Pod in close formation as they looked like they were in resting mode. When Orcas take a rest they form a close group and then do a series of shallow dives before making one long deep dive. It makes for a great photo opportunities as there dive patterns are more predictable and the tight grouping make for awesome photos, I think I took over 150 this evening!
Our guests were delighted to see the new baby J42 and her mother J16 "Slick" as well as other popular members of J Pod including J1 "Ruffles" and J2 "Granny". It was a beautiful evening to be on the water.
