Killer whales are
found in and around the bays of Southeast Alaska usually feeding
on small fish and other marine mammals like sea lions and
seals . They are the largest species of whales found. While
they are not considered a threat to humans, there's many a
commercial fisherman that has a whale of a story to tell.
On this particular
day this photo was shot, we saw at least 100 of these mammoth
beasts swimming with us as we skiffed around the bays. It
was an awesome and not soon forgotten experience.
