The M/V Seahawk set out on a beautiful May morning in Roche Harbor. Heading north we suddenly got a report of transient (marine mammal eating) orcas to the south near Victoria, BC! We are a member company of the Pacific Whale Watch Association, and as members we are all obligated to share sighting information with one another giving us an unprecedented advantage over companies outside of the coalition. We ended up coming upon my absolute favorite Transient male T19B also known as Galiano. His dorsal fin is so large it has a slight lean to it! Captain Jim and I had a wonderful time meeting our guests from the University of Minnesota at Duluth, and we wish them all the best in their studies and future endeavors!
