2 Transients On the Hunt!

It was another beautiful day on the water. The sun was out in full shine, the water pure glass. Out in Haro Strait at the very northeastern tip of D’Arcy Island we found two Transient Orcas (48°35.77N, 123°15.61W). We identified them as male T20 and female T21. Fortunately we were able to watch them hunt for a while.

We then continued our way around Mandarte Island, through the Cactus Islands, and back home. We saw all kinds of wildlife including Cormorants, gulls, Pigeon Guillemots, Harbor Seals, Harbor Porpoise, Bald Eagles, Fallow Deer, and Mouflon Sheep. Couldn’t ask for much more on a day like this!
