Today on the noon Ocean Magic II trip we met up with the T30 group of transient killer whales just west of Race Rocks. The whales were in pursuit of a harbour seal and after the kill continued traveling east in search of marine mammal prey. We watched as the group hunted animals a few more times before we headed over to Race Rocks to view the sea lions hauled out on the rocks. The Stellers were testing each other for the top positions. After visiting the ecological reserve we stopped over at East Sooke Park where there were a couple of harbour seals on the rocky shorelines and turkey vultures soaring in the treetops.
