While the Orcas seemed to just disappear it was a good thing for the family of Humpback whales since transients do hunt their young calves......

Daylight waning and our day was almost done on the cruise, the captain took a vote from us passengers to stay out a little late for this opportunity!
I will give them a plug. Prince of Whales was a fantastic company, crew and boat to experience! We will go out with them again, for sure!

Not a bad idea, it has quite the history but you never know, right! Thanks for taking time to comment, Barbara!

I once stayed at a B and B in NL Canada called the Prints of Whales. Each room was named after a whale and your stay included a framed print of that whale.
