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.
Species: Phoca vitulina (Harbor Seal)

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
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.

Dive Sequence
I love all the water that runs off the flukes as the tail comes out of the water.

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.

Breaching Humpback

My Bad. My camera wasn't auto focusing and I don't have enough practice doing it manually.
I guess I'm just going to have to go on another whale watching tour.

Waving Fin

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

Light Fins Under Water

The fins are white and are visible through at least 50 feet of water.

Humpback Whale

The fin is long and near the back of the whale - hence the name Humpback.

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.
