These orcas seem to be hanging around. They’re here feeding mostly on the sea lions and harbor seals. We’re starting to see the male sea lions making their way back from the breeding grounds in Southern California.

The weather has been a little unstable lately. The winds have been picking up in the afternoon, making afternoon trips rough going. But it’s good for the whales. Hopefully we get some nice krill blooms out the sun and wind forecast for the next couple of days.
