Western Explorer Whale Watching: June 15, 2016
We headed north from Friday Harbor into the Canadian Gulf Islands to catch up a family of Bigg’s Killer whales, the T124As! We mostly watched them travel along. Things changed a little on into our encounter and we got to witness a successful Harbor seal hunt. You can see the Harbor seal in some of the images below.

Grabbing the seal
The Harbor seal head is right by the dorsal fin of the whale.
The Western Prince II looks on from a respectful distance while T124A works on a Harbor seal. See the blood?
