On Sunday, September 15 the day started off looking at some fog out to the west but it lifted before we made it out there and avoided the fog bank completely. The seas were completely flat and it was really neat to watch the blanket of fog slowly lift up off of the ocean surface. Marauder and the our Zodiac quickly sped off to start their search.

Once we were south of Sooke we came across this beautiful family, the T46B1’s with the famous little 4 month old boy Tl’uk who has skin discolouration due to what is suspected to be leucism. He greatly stands out among his family members and is quite a sight, we were very lucky to meet him. There was a bit of a light rain but it didn’t last very long.

After hanging out with the killer whales for a little while we made a quick stop at the Race Rocks Lighthouse and Ecological Reserve where we saw this familiar fuzzy little face. This is our friend Harry Otter, he has been living alone at the lighthouse for a few years now and likes to take naps in the kelp patch here. It is always a treat to see this guy acting cute, grooming his very thick fur or enjoying a meal of sea urchins.
