Apr 4, 2019 – An adorable Transient Orca calf was spotted on our tour today with skipper Mark. The glassy waters made for a seriously smooth trip, with views of the Olympic mountain range as a beautiful backdrop.
Mark and our guests headed towards Discovery Island where they came across a couple of Steller Sea Lions making the most of the sunshine. Take a look at another of our blog posts about Steller Sea Lions and to see a picture of one feasting on a delicious snack… an octopus. (It’s an acquired taste!)
On their way to Race Rocks to check out the lighthouse, Mark received a call over the radio – Orcas had been spotted! Away they went to catch up with these magnificent animals. It was amazing for our guests to see a young calf swimming with its mother. Welcome to the world, little one!
