Pod Swimming By
We were starting to pull away when this pod popped up. That is likely a young whale between the two females and you can see the larger male dorsal fin with a wave in it.

Female Orca Blowing

I've seen lots of Orca's on -2 Channel, but seeing them live
is something special.

Male Orca Blowing

The male Dorsel Fins are impressive.� They stand out in a group and when the they get close
they are easy to spot.

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.

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

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.

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.
