Killer Whales in Victoria, Canada: Finding Free Willy

Victoria, Vancouver Island, Canada

I’m certainly no wildlife photographer – any self-respecting specimen might like to have a look at these holiday snaps in order to have a good giggle – but I did want to show you how beautiful and peaceful our trip to find “killer whales” (orcas) was. We really loved the fact that our boat didn’t rush up to the whales or try to chase them for the sake of better photo ops (as you can clearly see), but we managed to experience their majesty pretty close up – including a baby with a momma (second and third last photos). In the last photograph you’ll see the impressive Fairmont Empress from the water – Victoria’s pride and joy and our happy haven for the night.
