Cruising Alaska, July 2007 - Victoria-Seattle-Whitehorse

The viewing of several resident orca from L Pod was good once we reached San Juan Island, about a 3/4 hour run on fairly rough water. The photography, though, wasn't very good due to both the roughness and the fact that the whales were usually toward the setting sun.

    The guides take pictures during the trips, that are then posted on the company's blog - here's a funny picture of one of the other people on the top deck on the return to Victoria. There is both open deck and enclosed seating - for those who chose outside (as we did), the water was much too rough to navigate the deck to get inside, but there were warm waterproof jackets available for everyone.
