Whale Watching

From Anacortes, we took the whale watching tour with Island Adventures aboard a modern, high speed catamaran. 
In addition to the Orcas, seen above, there were plenty of sights during our 5 hour trip.  Here are some of them:
Harbor seals at left.  A Minke whale above disturbing sea gulls after a "bait ball".  Minke whales have the curved dorsal fin.  Below is a male Orca whale.  Notice the extended dorsal fin.  The lower left photo is the Burrows Island Lighthouse.
At left, a sea gull with a tasty snack.  Above is the Point Wilson Lighthouse.  Below are a couple more images of Orcas.  The one on the right shows the mist coming out of the whale's blow hole.
