Photo: Whale Watching Orca Killer Whales Playing Sunset

A recent sea lion kill is reason to celebrate for these transient orca whales, who were spotted playing at sunset during an killer whale watching trip.

The transient killer whales are usually not as social as the resident orca whales, however a sea lion feast is the cause of their excitement which was expressed by playing. We were lucky enough to be out whale watching at sunset to see the show.

Transient killer whales (orca, Orcinus orca, T30's & T137's) after killing a sea lion off Malcolm Island near Donegal Head, British Columbia, Canada.
