Washington Department Fish and Wildlife keeping an eye on the whale watchers. The boats are supposed to keep 100 yards away from the orcas. It’s okay if you are stopped and the orcas come to you though
I’m so happy to see you!
The people are on shore were lucky enough to have these orcas breech right in front of them. This is a once in a lifetime event that they will remember for years to come
Could not believe all the people on this whale watching tour – doesn’t look like there is much room to maneuver – so glad that we are on a small 30 ft boat and there are only 8 of us including the captain. We have room to move around the boat.This boat traveled from British Columbia and since they have to travel at fast speeds to get to area where the orcas are they have to wear rain gear.
On our tour today we spotted some seals on the rocks
Today was our first whale watching tour. Aaron arranged for us to go out on a six hour tour with Captain Spencer of Maya’s Legacy Whale Watching. Most tours are only three hours but Aaron made special arrangements to give us more time on the water.
It took a while for us to get used to taking photos on a rocking boat but we got some great shots
And here come’s our ride and we are off to Friday Harbor in the SanJuan Islands
Looks like it’s lunch time
Maya’s Legacy Tour Boat is the one on the left just in front of the one with the yellow top. It was hard to get a good photo of the boat.
