Morning adventures with L-pod and a Gray Whale! July 9, 2010

Here are just a couple of pictures from this morning's wonderful encounter with members of L-pod and a Gray Whale!

We found L-pod a few miles south of Victoria heading west not long after leaving the harbour during our 8.30am tour. The Orcas were soon identified as members of L-pod, including L5 "Tanya" and her sub pod. Whilst we watched the Orcas we witnessed a number of them foraging (hunting) for Salmon.

At Race Rocks we saw 4 Bald Eagles as well as several Harbour Seals. In Oak Bay we saw many more Harbour Seals plus the Gray Whale that has been hanging out near Victoria!

What a wonderful way to start the day:)
