This morning we woke up to the news that both J and L pods were inbound. We haven’t seen much of the Ls this season so it was awesome to finally see them! On our afternoon trip we spent the majority of our time with the engine off surrounded by whales. Everywhere you looked the were orcas playing, tail lobbing, spy hopping, and breaching. Both guests and crew were left speechless by the display.

With such a great afternoon we were eager to get back on the water for the evening! The whales definitely did not disappoint! We were treated to an amazing breach-fest, some beautiful looks at orcas from J and L pods and a gorgeous sunset! Today was just a magical day.
