Biggs Killer Whales on our Adventure Trip
M/V Kestrel | Thursday, July 1st | Naturalist Alexandria
We had a great day today on MV Kestrel! Captain Eric and myself loaded on our wonderful guests, and headed out into a San Juan Channel. We were excited to hear rumors I’ve orcas a bit north east of us. As we headed out we made a left into San Juan Channel and the adventure began!
We kept our eyes out for eagles and harbor seals, and we are fortunate enough even to find an eagle nest to show everybody how long with you eagles throughout the trip. One of the highlights was getting to see some Biggs killer whales foraging! We were in a great spot to see this off Orcas Island, and got to spend a great chunk of time with them! We got some incredible looks at them, including some incredible surface action that allowed us to watch a myriad of their behaviors as their hunter for a snack!
It was an awesome day and certainly one we will remember!
Until next time,
