orca whales 1

A highlight of our vacation was a whale watching tour we took - the area we were at was "Strait of Juan de Fuca " an area near San Juan island and Vancouver Islands in B.C.

From what I understand there are three pods ( families ) of Orca whales that reside in that area. The day we took the whale tour all three pods were out in the area and visible from where we were.
