Our adventurers set off with the calm waters and blue sky a good sign of things to come.

Venturing out to Race Rocks we were lucky enough to see Bald Eagles perching on the rocks (pictured above).

Working our way around the Race Rocks area were also lucky enough to see lots of California and Steller Sea Lions.

The Harbour Seals were also out in force making use of the weather to warm up before getting back into the chilly waters.

During the trip the group was lucky enough to see Dall’s porpoise bow riding the zodiac! This species is the largest type of porpoise and can reach speeds of  55 km/hr (34 mph)- no trouble keeping up with a zodiac then!Dall's propoise bow riding the zodiac!
