April 9th - Transient Orcas
As the Transient Orcas were moving west, we decided to take the opportunity to visit Race Rocks Ecological Reserve where we saw a large number of Harbor Seals, Northern Elephant Seals and at least 3 Bald Eagles. We then headed a little further west and saw a large number of Dall’s Porpoise, that then started to bow ride our boat (they love the duel hulls of our Expedition Catamaran), which is always a thrill for our guests.
We then headed back East towards Race Rocks where we encountered the TO49A’s just south of the Ecological Reserve. Once again we witnessed the youngster playing with the older brother and got to see several breaches, tail slaps and Spyhops! The Orcas continued to travel west at about 8 knots so we left them and headed over to look at the Sea Lions at Race Rocks before heading home.
With calm seas, sunny skies and so much marine life to enjoy, this was one very memorable day! Please don’t forget to visit our Trip Advisor Page and leave some kind comments about this trip:)
