Photo: Orca Pod Northern Vancouver Island

The sun brightens the coastline where a pod of Northern Resident Orca are seen off Northern Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada.

A pod of Orca find the calm waters under the sunny skies off Northern Vancouver Island the ideal time to explore the shoreline. This pod heads closer to the rock ledges as sometimes they can find some good fishing areas closer in towards shore.

Orca have their own set of plans that only they understand and each day varies in where they are or where they will be heading. Sometimes you can find them tucked in along the rock ledges, rubbing on the beaches of Robson Bight or travelling in the middle of the waters off Northern Vancouver Island.

The two taller dorsal fins in this picture that are glistening in the sunlight as they swim along with the rest of the pod are those of males. These boys stick close to the matriarch of the pod as she is the leader and everyone in the family listens to the calls that she makes.

A family portrait of an Orca Pod off Northern Vancouver Island is a fairly easy task to complete from June to October every year. Board one of the many whale watching tours that operate from the small coastal towns along the waterfront of Northern Vancouver Island and get your own picture of an Orca Pod. There is nothing in the world that compares to being out on the water on a beautiful day watching a pod of Orca in their natural environment.
