Saturday, February 9th
...out with Capt. Jim of Maya's Westside Charters,
it was an afternoon of watching what appeared to be lots of foraging
behavior, accompanied with lots of play, and hours of
vocalizations...the whales could be heard over the Lime Kiln and Orca
Sound hydrophones throughout the afternoon and early evening.
as the whales were 'doing their thing' so were the passengers...some
were quiet and shy, yet later exclaimed with delight that it was the best day of their life...others were 'beside themselves' with joy upon seeing a killer whale in the wild for the first time in their lives...that too brings me joy!
wonder how many smiles there were today for those who listened to the
hydrophones as the whales spent the day being quite vocal...
Here's some of what they may have heard...
Enjoy the whales! Thank you!
