SEPTEMBER 29 2017 – The area around Race Rocks lighthouse is always a great place to search for orcas and humpback whales. Today we encountered 3 groups of transient orcas 2 miles southwest of Race Rocks. The families of T11’s and T46B’s were present together with the lone male T87 (seen by our zodiac). In the afternoon the wind had picked up and made searching difficult. We were lucky to find a young humpback whale in a bay protected from the worst swells. The sea lions at Race Rocks didn’t mind the rough sea as the pictures shows!
