Orcas in Patagonia

Here is the latest report from Punta Norte, Peninsula Valdes, Patagonia.

Today rain and wind did not help us to see the Orcas. But when we arrived in the attack channel 7 animals were waiting for sea lion pubs to cross. At the moment the sea lion pubs start to enter the water. This is the moment for the Orcas.

Here you can see a sea lion mother with pub.

Once the pub enters the water in the attack channel the Orcas spot them with their sonar system. Here Valeen, a younger Orca trys to catch.....

But the sea lion is on duty and manages to get the pub away from the water

they reach the save beach....
