This Steller’s Sea Lion recovering from what looks like a scrap!

Today we were lucky enough to see the A23 matriline of Fish-eating Orcas! They were surrounded by very active Pacific White-sided Dolphins and Dall’s porpoise. Earlier we saw a Steller’s Sea Lion, that looked as if he may have been in a fight, resting on a rock. We also had great sightings of Humpback Whales on both of our trips!

A look at Argonaut the Humpback Whale’s fluke!

Fife the Resident Orca Whale takes a breath!
