Cruising Alaska's Inside Passage for over 12 years certainly has it's benefits. One of my favorite things to view are Orca whales. They are fearless, majestic and provide incredible photographic opportunities. On a recent trip on the M/V Sikumi (http://www.sikumi.com) the orca whales were passing through on their migratory trip from California and were incredibly active. So much so, that it was hard not to get a phenomenal picture.
