Absolutely Unreal Day with Bigg’s (Transient) Killer Whales – 11/6/16

What a wild day. My best encounter of the season thus far-an absolutely unreal day with the T100’s, T124A’s, T86A’s and T123’s.

T124A4 breach

An epic encounter with 15 Bigg’s Killer Whales spending more time in the air than in the water!



Check out this breach sequence from T100C!






Non stop surface activity and I have never had whales be so boat curious…..at one point, we had T86A3 sitting vertical at our stern looking up at us stationary…..insane.

It’s not often you get this close to a wild killer whale. T100C was very interactive with us and on this pass he came straight at us, went under the boat and then swam upside down beneath us and came up the other side and that’s when I snapped this photo!

Favourite shot from today. T123C “Lucky” in the back breaching and T86A3 launching out of the water in front.
