It was a magical morning for both our Marauder IV and the Zodiac on the Salish Sea. There was a layer of fog setting a mysterious atmosphere, suitable for the Pacific Northwest, but soon enough it cleared. As we started to approach Race Rocks Ecological Reserve, we encountered a pod of Transient Killer Whales traveling together.
The calm and glassy water provided us with wonderful views of the numerous animals. We bobbed along side the Orcas and watched them peacefully. We saw numerous Whales and Fins- a really lovely display of the entire pod, it was special to see them altogether.
After spending a while enjoying these dreamy moments, we headed off the Race Rocks. We found (and heard) Sea Lions and Seals sleeping and relaxing on the rocks, soaking up the sun and filling up on vitamin D.
Just before making our journey back home, we discovered an otter gliding smoothly through the water on its way to the shore.
