Finally, here are the rest of my killer whale photos!
One of the questions everyone asked me after the trip was: “How close did the killer whales get to the boat?” The photo on the left captured the answer: very close. When these two whales surfaced directly in front of the boat there was a collective gasp from everyone on board.
As I was going through all my pictures, it became obvious that I took several photos of the same killer whale with two notches on the back edge of its dorsal fin. If you look closely at the photo on the right (directly below), you can see a large notch and just above it a much smaller notch.
This post also includes photos of one of the killer whales that kept slapping its tail on the surface of the water giving us quite a show.
The rest of the photos are a selection of my favorites that I just wanted to share. Enjoy!
