We sailed out in very nice weather after the storm that hit us last night. We started by having an encounter with one of our friends, the humpback Harley Dafinson and a little later the individual Miso with very good sightings.  After having seeing these quite a few times we got distracted by Orca for the second time this year. The last time was in late September so this is quite rare and the crew as well as the passengers got very excited. The Orca were very close to the boat so we got great pictures as you can see. We left these to travel south and visited the humpback whales again. We went further north to see if other humpbacks around but instead found a minke whale that showed itself fairly very well. On the way home we encountered  Miso surfaced again. 

All in all this was a great tour and this rare sighting of Orca of course made it exceptional.
