Conditions just won’t seem to clean up for us. It wasn’t as rough as we thought it would be, but not a comfortable ride. The good news is that we had reports of blue whales. The bad news was that because of the conditions we had to make a choice between seeing part of the mighty, elusive blue whale or checking out frolicking, friendly orcas.

We went for the orcas had that was what we spent the whole trip doing. We ended up getting lucky and the pod came right up to the boat and then went under the boat and up on the other side. It’s amazing to have the magnificent animals come up and be within a few feet of you. Really a neat thing to experiece.
