1/4/14 Move Over Fellas, the Moms and Pups May Be Moving In

Saturday, January 4th
...out on Maya's Westside Charters on a sunny day with calm seas...you just never know what you might encounter...

...Five Steller sea lions hauled out at Kelp Reef marker...check out that shadow...

...on down island to see what we might see...not much along the way...we go to Whale Rocks to see more Stellers, which are known for being there during the winter months...in the past it used to be only Adult males...
..."well, fellas, you better move over"...
...it looks like moms and pups may be moving in!
 ...after leaving Whale Rocks we all were seeing some strange splashes - Dalls'?- too small...killer whale? - no dorsal fins...birds? - they didn't pop back up...we got closer...they were porpoising...assumption was Dalls...
NOPE! - Harbor Porpoise...



...starting 2014 with two very unusual encounters...what will be next!
