The whale watching safaris from Grizzly Bear Lodge has a good chance of finding resident orca or killer whales. The resident orca is the fish eaters while the transient orca are the male eaters and are less common in the summer. This photo demonstrates the difference in size of the dorsal fins between a male and female orca. The males fin can be up to two meters (six feet) while the females are often less than half the height.
This summer we were fortunate to have a photography student stay with us at the lodge. He spent a lot of time at our wild river where we conduct our extra day trip. He was Trapper Rick’s assistant helping him search for Grizzly Bears looking for salmon along the river. Felix’s accommodation there may have been basic (just a tent), but he definitely had a million dollar view. You can see some of his pics here felixrome.smugmug.com/ and we will be featuring many of them on the blog.Visit our Blog
