You'll be fortunate to paddle your kayak through the favored habitat of the Southern Resident Orca Whales, which are currently protected under the Endangered Species Act. There are over 80 known resident whales in this area, composed of three distinct groups -- maternal families known as the J, K, and L pods. Orcas are also known as "killer whales," but don't let that frighten you. Orcas are actually oceanic dolphins, and the beautiful and intelligent creatures you may encounter on this trip feed exclusively on salmon.
