Transient Orcas in the afternoon! June 1st, 2012

This afternoon we caught up with a pod of Tranient Orcas, identified by Ron Bates, as the T30′s, in Haro Strait heading south. The T30′s have a new calf and have been hanging around the area for a number of days now.

As we continued to follow them the Orcas traveled past Chatham and Discovery Island and then turned south west. We believe we witnessed at least one kill whilst we were watching these apex predators.

We also saw Harbor Seals, the main prey of Transient Orcas and Harbor Porpoise, another main prey, plus Bald Eagles.

It was anther great day on the water!
