Description:
On 28 June 2016 my wife and I were charter fishing for halibut with Bob's Trophy Charters out of Homer, Alaska! We were moving from one fishing hole to another fishing hole when we passed a safe distance from a female and young Orcas swimming to some destination! They were swimming in a defined path toward the Gulf of Alaska and out of Cook Inlet! Pretty cool! This is the young Orca surfacing parallel to us at a safe distance, just moving on!
