Amazing wildlife sightings on Alaska’s Kenai Peninsula #3
A “killer” time: “On one boat ride out to Kenai Fjords Glacier Lodge, Dall porpoises played in the surf at the bow, racing the boat and teasing us with their quick, agile bodies. No sooner than the porpoises had peeled away from their surf session, apod of transient orcas came to take their place. We stopped the boat and cut the engine, letting the sound of the enormous bodies rolling under our boat amaze us. You could tell the males from the females by their six-foot-high dorsal fins. We snapped photos of their particular markings and compared them with a scientific website later to learn their names and relations to one other. In the pod we saw that day, we were able to identify five generations of killer whales.”
