Icy Bay to Whittier

July 7, 2015

 

As we motored out of Nassau Fiord and into Icy Bay a pair of Orcas surfaced alongside the boat, giving everyone a bit of a fright. We were able to get a really good view of just how big and impressive these creatures are, bulging with power and menace as they patrolled the channels leading into PWS searching for returning salmon, unguarded seal pups and their parents. When hunting as a pack they will even attack and kill the 1 ton Stellar Sealions and we were told when down in Kodiak that the local pod had killed up to 6 Humpback Whales, eating only the tongue and lower jaw! Truly the top of the food chain hereabouts.
