OCTOBER 27 2017 – California orcas! Our zodiac RipTide went out today and we had news of both humpback whales and orcas out west. We went fast to catch up with a group of transient orcas. We had at least 3 orcas traveling at great speed coming quickly up for air. As it turned out they are California transient orcas visiting our waters. It doesn’t happen often but occasionally we get groups of orcas that we don’t recognize and often they are offshore/California transient orcas. What a treat! Around Race Rocks we had several humpback whales feeding, sea lions and bird life.
