It was a long trip north to the Coal Docks (BC coast), but well worth it as Mystic Sea encountered two, possibly 3 groups of Transient/Biggs orca in the area. They appeared to be mixed together in a couple of groups (T24As and T36As for sure, possibly T49As also), with many directional changes. What a thrill to see these mammal eaters, wild and free, and on such a beautiful day. A few harbor porpoise were spotted, harbor seals, and eagles, with Mt. Baker looming in the background as we returned to port. ~Jill Hein, volunteer naturalist.
