Jpod in the morning and Transient Orcas in the afternoon & Evening! June 20th, 2009.

The pictures below were taken by Ron Bates, MMRG.

The picture above and the four pictures below are of the T49's

The picture above and the three below are of Jpod.

We spent the morning with Jpod who were moving rapidly North on the West side of San Juan Island. When we arrived on scene Jpod had already moved past Lime Kiln lighthouse.

In the afternoon and evening our tours encountered the T49's a group of Transient Marine Mammal eating Orcas. Whilst watching the Orcas we saw several kills including a dramatic Seal kill right at the entrance to Sooke Harbour during our evening tour!
