This was my first trip out as a Naturalist! A dream come true for a little girl from Ontario who always hoped to have the chance to see killer whales off BC. Wow! this is my job, pinch me this can’t be real. A day to remember. At this time we were not allowed to bring cameras as employees. However, you really had the opportunity to savour those moments not looking through a lens. I truly fell for J pod on day one. He was a favourite among many, J1 was very impressive to see in person. I realized he was the reason why there was a Southern Resident population and I was astonished by the devotion between J1, and J2.
This was only the beginning to many amazing experiences with SRKW!
