The only place that I can think of that would make this photo possible is the front deck of the Grizzly Bear Lodge. The boats we spend most of the tour day in are not high enough to offer this overhead view of a bald eagle. Eagles are common in the area of the lodge but most of the time they are overhead but on occasion they do come down to feed in front of the lodge.
Seems to be three choices for this tail: a small humpback whale, a large dolphin or a killer whale. All three are common when on a whale watching trip from the lodge. The area’s humpback whale population has grown to the point that we often view up to a dozen whales a trip, the resident killer whales a frequently in the area feeding on salmon and large pods of pacific whitesided dolphins appear on a regular basis. Also there are Steller or northern sea lions, harbour seals, porpoise, bald eagles, a large variety of ducks and sea birds as well as the occasional black bear.
