I feel so lucky and blessed as I have spent the last several summer's in Alaska, Kenai Fjords Region... where I have worked for a Whale and Wildlife watch company. With my Marine Naturalist background, it has gifted me with the knowledge of these amazing beings. I spent four years in the San Juan islands surrounded by the three endangered pods of Southern Resident Orcas as well as Transients. This summer we had a most magical day at the end of June on a trip... shortly after departure from Seward Harbor, we encountered one of several resident pods that call this area home, soon after that we had a small group of transients, although much more stealthy and boat shy, it is still an amazing sightings. At the onset of entering Aialik Bay we had another pod of residents which was amazing... Now to top it off at the end of the day heading back into Resurrection Bay, we were literally surrounded by Whales... Capn.. D on duty that day, who does Orca ID work.. announced that these were offshores... the third ecotype of Orcas. Literally they were everywhere... I cannot begin to explain the excitement and magic of this.All three types of Orcas n one day.. later Capitano went out and collected Shark Livers which were rising to the surface. The belief is that Offshore Orcas feed on Sharks and here they were feeding on Sleeper Sharks. One of the most incredible days ever.
