Merry and I made two dives at Marineland today and had great conditions, shot a lot of photos and had fun, but that was not the highlight of our day. After leaving Marineland I spotted two small boats a mile and half offshore with lots of splashing going on between them. As we approached we saw the fluke of one and knew we found Orcas. There were twelve of them, as counted by Orca expert Alisa Schulman-Janiger, who was on one of the boats. We stayed with them for more than two hours as they hunted sea lions and even performed a little mating action for us. Several of them swam under our boat a few times and one rubbed his dorsal fin on the side of it.
