Pod Swimming By
We were starting to pull away when this pod popped up. That is likely a young whale between the two females and you can see the larger male dorsal fin with a wave in it.

Seals on Belle Islands

Pretty much snack sized Killer Whale snacks. They were on the same chain of

Sea Otters Looking At Us
We startled these guys - they came up looking the other way (probably for kayakers) and when I took the first exposure, they turned to see the noise (shot) and then took off.

Seal High Up On Rock
I wondered if this seal was blind in one eye - his left eye was cloudy while is right was a normal dark glassy look.
