Fantastic Day with Seabirds, Seals & Transient Orca!

This was a great tour. We started out by heading to Mandarte Island to take a look around the bird sanctuary. There we saw double-crested & palagic cormorants, pigeon guillimonts and bald eagles. Then we headed off to the Saalas Rocks and checked out some seals and their pups. So cute! After the seals, we headed to the east entrance of Juan de Fuca where we found 5 transient orca whales. We watched T20 & T21 chase down and have a seal for lunch, it was awesome to watch. And to top it off we caught glimpses of a new baby transient! This was a great day on the water. So much to see!
