Transient Orcas encountered in Haro Strait! May 28th, 2012

The images above are from today’s encounter with Transient Orcas in Haro Strait.

When we headed out on our 2pm tour we had received no reports of Orcas in our area but as is often the case, we found the Orcas during our search of the area. We were going to head west but due to wind and waves we ended up heading east and not long after searching Haro Strait our Captain spotted a dorsal fin going down:) When the Orcas next surfaced we realized we had a pod of Transient Orcas and Ron quickly identified them as the T10′s.

The Orcas were making their way north as we followed them up Haro Strait and we believe we witnessed at least one kill.

Today is a perfect example that you really do have to go and look for the wildlife out in the ocean.
