Photo: Orca Family Northern Vancouver Island

An Orca family enjoying the calm waters off Northern Vancouver Island in British Columbia at sunset.

The golden rays from the sunset glisten off the surface of the ocean and the Orca family as they gently swim through the waters off Northern Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada. The sun filters through the mist from their blowholes that lingers above the Orca family giving off a mystical sight.The saying silence is golden is exactly what encompasses this family as they seem to enjoy the tranquility around them. At this time of evening off Northern Vancouver Island, a majority of the whale watching tours have headed home for the evening. You will find this to be the ideal time to be out on the water and be one on one with the Orca as you listen to their blows in the calm waters.One or two of these family members seem to be resting, two are slowly traveling and one has found the time for a little play. This Orca family is one of the subpods from the Northern Resident Pods that journey through these waters during the summer and fall months. ... continue below the picture...
