Monterey Bay - what a treasure! My buddy Matt Brandon and I were treated to Orcas on Monday. We came across a pod of 7 hunting killer whales and watched them feed. After Orcas eat, they start to play - slapping their tails, rolling, and generally goofing off. While they're doing this it's hard to imagine that they are the apex predator of the oceans.
We also saw Humpbacks, a Blue Shark, Pacific White Sided Dolphins, and Risso's Dolphins. There aren't many better ways to spend a day.
