Wednesday morning orcas: Mission Blue

Posted by: Shanna Carpenter

As attendees of the Mission Blue Voyage were having their breakfast, they were treated to one of the rarer sightings in the Galapagos — a couple of orcas swimming close to the Endeavor. Luckily, Peter Tyack of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute managed to snap a few close-ups of the giant beauties.
