Had a great day out on the water last week in Blackfish Sound, just off the eastern end of Malcolm Island, BC. Lots of Orca, humpback whales, Pacific white sided dolphins, sea lions and porpoise in the area. Thought you may like to see what it's like up in this part of the coast. My K5 and 55-300mm didn't let me down once
