Photo and caption by guest @rhloutdoors who recently joined us on a Sea Otter and Whale Watching Tour,.

"Thrilled to have one of my most memorable wildlife experiences on the coast a few days back.
For 2 hours we watched 4 transient orcas hunting steller sea lions at a haul out. The commotion created by the sea lions on high alert was deafening. All the while 3 humpback whales were very near by with their loud, distressed breathing adding to the cacophony.
Truly a spectacle, one that the photos I took and cherish can not do justice to!"
