November 1st - Discovery - Orca and Humpback (#81)

Dan, Paulo and I went for a morning paddle out to the islands. great conditions with wonderful wildlife today. Crossing Baynes Channel we spotted and watched a male orca for a few minutes and then as we rounded the top end of Chatham Island, we spotted a humpback which basically preceded us all the way down the east side of the islands. Nice to see two types of whales on one trip!
Lots of birds out as well including marbled murrelets and surf scoters.
