Here are a few images from this mornings spectacular morning trip!
We were the only Whale Watching boat on the water this morning and covered over 50 miles in order to show our passengers the wonders of the Salish Sea!

At Race Rocks we saw a large number of Steller Sealions, 2 California Sealions and at least a dozen Northern Elephant Seals.

Our search also took us into Haro Strait and the Chain Islets where we saw countless Harbor Seals as well as a multitude of Sea Birds including Cormorants and Harlequin Ducks. There was even a Bald Eagle at Trial Island!

It was the perfect morning on the water and a wonderful start to the day.
