Orca ... St. Anthony Bight

Had to put up just one more today ... and haven't even started on the humpback whale photographs! Didn't get out for a second trip today ... after the first two trips today, there weren't enough people for a third. :-( Tomorrow is supposed to be another great day though ... as far as the weather is concerned ... so might try the 9 AM trip again. Have reservations anyway.


I also have some HD video of these guys coming up alonside the tour boat. Will have to wait until I can get some video editing software though ... gotta edit out some folks ... at least the part that shows faces ... since I never got any model releases. :-) Pretty cool though ... orcas and people in the same shot ... and not in some aquarium somewhere ... but in the wild!


If you are ever in the St. Anthony area ... or anywhere even remotely close ... you should definitely make arrangements to take one of the Northland Discovery boat tours. These tours are conducted by the Alcock family, and ... trust me ... if you take one of their tours you won't be disappointed. They go out of their way to please. Check them out online.
