T63 & T41 Group
On today’s noon trip aboard the Ocean Magic II we met up with transient killer whales a couple miles south of Race Rocks. T63 and the T41 group were taking long dives and heading in a southeasterly direction through the choppy swells. A couple of the whales spy hopped and another flung its tail high into the air. On the way back to Victoria we stopped at the Ecological Reserve to view pinnipeds. A couple of the California sea lions had tracking numbers that will enable researchers to identify their migratory habitats.
