Trip Highlights: (where we went, what we saw, etc.) We went out past Malcolm Island and had lunch with the orcas! We saw at least 5 families and at least 30 orcas. We heard G clan (which sounds like a donkey) and A clan (like a whistle). Amazing. We also saw harbour seals (with a baby) and followed a humpback for a while. Lots of pigeon guillemots too. Also saw a bald eagle flying. Additional Comments: Beautiful weather, calm seas, fantastic hosts. An amazing experience we wont forget. Thank you so much for a very special day!
