WOW… What a day! It started with a sea lion greeting us in the morning and then a striped marlin jumping out of the water. The mission today was to look for orcas and as we began moving, the airplane pilot told us that he had spotted them and after a little search we found them too.
A group of five females, one big male and a baby! The first encounter was short and left us waiting for more! we continued watching them the whole day. but had to wait patiently until finally, in the late afternoon we saw the orcas hunting mobula rays. We entered the water with them and had the perfect combination of mobula rays and orcas! I can’t wait to see what will happen tomorrow!
