Evening encounter with L-pod! July 9th, 2010.

Here are just a few images from this evening's awesome encounter with members of L-pod south west of Victoria! The Orcas had moved west throughout the day and had been almost out of our range but turned around and came back to Victoria just in time for our evening adventure:)

The Orcas were surfing through 3-5' waves when we first arrived on scene and were spread out from the shore line to past the middle of the Strait of Juan De Fuca. Not long after we arrived on scene we realized that the group of L's we had first found this morning had been joined by other members of their pod! We witnessed a number of incredible breaches, tailslaps and spyhops as the Orcas made their way East towards Race Rocks.

What a wonderful way to end the day:)
