NOVEMBER 11 2017 – We went out for a 1:00 pm Marine Wildlife Tour today and the wildlife did not disappoint. We first encountered several humpback whales around Race Rocks nature reserve. After that we got lucky to see a very special visitor to our waters. In a pod of transient orcas we had a male T72 with a curved dorsal fin top. He is rarely seen outside of his normal range around Juneau, Alaska more than 800 miles away! Welcome to the Salish Sea we say to this lone male! In the pictures you can see him together with another lone male T103 a male who we see much more often in our waters.

The one with a curved dorsal is T72 an Alaskan orca visiting!
