The area of Northern Vancouver Island is a prime destination to see not only orcas but also a beautiful sunset on a fine late summer evening.

This serene pod of Orcas were making their way towards Queen Charlotte Strait at sunset, just as a fishing vessel appeared from Blackfish Sound. At that point the sunset light was stunning as the coastal landscape and sky above turned several shades of pink and mauve. It was a brief show of light at sunset but the setting was perfect with the scenery, and Orcas.
