Whale watching can be pretty hard.. Yesterday we had to make the difficult decision whether to go and see a sperm whale, hundreds of dusky dolphins, or this family of orcas. Thanks to some great time management from our skipper we got to see all of it in one tour 😉 We even got to see the big male orca and two females ripping apart a stingray, while the baby orca was watching. Looked like they were teaching it how to do it. Epic! Sorry for the average photos, I smashed my polarized filter a few days ago.. . . . #orcas #killerwhales #ourblueplanet #whalewatchkaikoura #oceanlife #whalewatching #marinemammals #cetaceans #marinelife #wildlife #kaikouraNZ #newzealandnatural #NZmustdo #nzlife #purenewzealand #beautifuldestinations #lovetotravel #exploremore #idratherbeinnature #keepitwild #natureaddict #wanderlust #exploringtheglobe #finditliveit #livingthelife #dreamlife #goplayoutside #natgeo #natgeoyourshot

#tbt to the day 2.5 years ago when I went kayaking, took this awesome photo with my Samsung WB350F camera with 21x optical zoom, and then subsequently drowned the camera in saltwater...never to own such a nice, zoomy camera again. 😭 ...Until now! #camera #seals #marinemammals #harborseals #pnw #salishsea

Watch the documentary ‘Lolita: Slave to Entertainment’ to find out more about her story. We will never stop fighting for you beautiful girl 🐳🖤Contact @orcanetwork_langleywhalecenter for info on how you can help and NEVER visit that dreadful place unless it’s to protest! Captivity is NOT education ❌ #Repost @seashepherdsscs with @get_repost ・・・ DOLPHIN CAPTIVITY IS SLAVERY Stolen from her home, Lolita the orca has been held captive by Miami Seaquarium for 47 years. She has no cover from the intense Florida sun, unable to dive in to escape the heat due to her small tank that does not meet legal requirements. Captured for human entertainment Lolita has performed 2-3 times a day, everyday since 1970 and has not seen another orca since the 1980's when her companion Hugo died after ramming his head into the side of their tank. Robbed from her family and freedom, Lolita is truly the world's loneliest whale. All Marine Mammals belong in the Ocean. 🐬☠️🐋 Defend. Conserve. Protect. #emptythetanks #thanksbutnothanks #orca #dolphins #killerwhale #marinemammals #savethewhales #animalrights #cetacean #seaworld #emptythetanks #conservation #miamiseaquarium #captivitykills #animalcruelty #blackfish #animalliberation #freelolita #fortheoceans #vegan #veganaf #vegans #vegancommunity #captivity #captivitykills #fuckseaworld #veganism #compassion #miamiseaquarium
