How Was Your Day?

It has been a few days since I have visited the blogosphere, but that does not mean I have been sitting on my laurels doing nothing.  We are heavily into "The Season" now and I have been out seeing orcas on a daily basis.  Yesterday it was the afternoon trip on the M/V Kittiwake and then the sunset trip on the M/V Sea Lion.  Today it was the M/V Sea Lion again, this time with Casey and Capt. Mike.  Each day has been a different experience and a lovely time on the water.  When the ocean is your office it is hard not to appreciate the life and setting that you find yourself in.  So what have we seen recently?  How about this:

  • Bald eagles; adults, juveniles and nesting pairs
  • Harbor seals on dozens of haul-outs
  • Harbor porpoises
  • Seagulls, cormorants, auklets and many more seabirds
  • Minke whale
  • Orcas - J1, J2, K40, L41, L25, J26, J28, J14, J30, J46, J45

So, from all of us at San Juan Safaris, how was your day?

See You In The Islands!
