Harbour Seals
Killer whale snacks. This guys looked plump and furry. It's funny that the images look better in the camera (with a hood) than they did when looking in real life (sun in your eyes).
Species: Phoca vitulina (Harbor Seal)

Just the Head of a Seal
As the Kayak drifted closer, my temptation was to zoom out (towards 80) to continue including the whole animal. I decided to do otherwise.

Dive Sequence By Rocks
Here three whales were feeding quite close to a rock wall - the water is about 130 feet deep here. This Humpback (Megaptera novaeangliae) has most of one fluke missing.
Species: Megaptera novaeangliae (Humpback Whale)

Fluke And Flippers
They don't always dive straight down, or surface just to breath. We saw this pair just rolling around at the surface before a dive.
Species: Megaptera novaeangliae (Humpback Whale)

Two Humpbacks Together
Three humpbacks (Megaptera novaeangliae) were swimming in close formation - here two surfaced together.

Sea Lions Diving In

I'm not a huge fan of the 200-400 lens - sure it gets you there, but
the image just isn't sharp.

Female Orca Looking at Us

This whale came up to the boat and just looked at us before diving under the boat and continuing on with the pod.

Species: Orcinus orca (killer whale, orca)

Pod of Female Orcas

I like this shot because the two lead Orcas are blowing and you can see the drops
spattering on the surface.
