Orcas near Olympia

My son Andrew and I took our little boat out for a cruise around the south Sound. As you can imagine we were quite surprised to see these whales breaching and splashing all over the place. We watched them for about 45 minutes and I took several dozen shots with my camera.

These orcas are protected and observers must stay 100 yards away http://bewhalewise.org LIMIT your viewing time to a recommended maximum of 30 minutes.

Wow - you must have a really nice zoom lens to get pictures like that from 100 yards away. Nice shots!

No fair! I went to whale watch park and saw nothing!

Those are some fantastic shots! I'm here in New Jersey and if that doesn't help the tourism industry in Washington, then nothing will.
