I didn’t think that yesterday’s experience could be blown away, but clearly I was wrong.

Woke up at 6am for breakfast when the captain called out for everyone to get into the wetsuits immediately. Orcas were spotted! They came right to the boat. We all boarded the rhib and we spent hours jumping in and swimming with them! The adrenaline level when I first hit the water with them was a level I have never come close to experiencing before. They were absolutely beautiful and when they look you in the eye the feeling is incredible. They got so close you could see one still had a little something in its mouth it was feeding on. After 3 hours of this some of us took a break for lunch while others continued. A short while later from the crow nest we witnessed perhaps a thousand dolphins heading our way leaping out of the water and having the time of their lives. At the same time the Orcas were heading towards the dolphins using our boat for cover. Suddenly the dolphins got tightly bunched up. They started to all swim in a circle rapidly. In the middle of them an Orca came up and took one of the dolphins while the others took off in all directions. All that was missing was David Attenborough’s narration. It was the most amazing thing I have ever witnessed! As quickly as it happened everything went back to normal and the jumping in with the Orcas continued for several more hours. In addition to all of that we also saw a Mola Mola too. I can’t wait to see what tomorrow has in store. This has been the most incredible trip already and we are only the third day in.
