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.

Dalls On Bow
Dalls move fast and are difficult to predict - it's hard to capture them well. Phocoenoides dalli.
Species: Phocoenoides dalli (Dall's porpoise)

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)

Dive Sequence
I love all the water that runs off the flukes as the tail comes out of the water.
Species: Megaptera novaeangliae (Humpback Whale)

John Harvey Photo > Aristazabal Island > Aristazabal Island - Day 5, 6 > Dive Sequence

Dive Sequence
At this location, the whales would come up to the surface and breath about 5 to 8 times and then dive again, generally for 6 to 8 minuets. You can tell there last breath at the surface because you would see the hump back, and then the tail as they go down.
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.

Waving Fin

The whales rise to the surface to breath and then slowly sink away.
