A small pod of orcas were observed near Vanderbilt reef. Unfortunately the pod separated before we could get near them, and I was only able to photograph a juvenile male. He was difficult to track, as he was moving quickly, zigzagging, and porpoising out of the water. Suddenly he began slapping his tail and breaching. A flock of gulls appeared out of nowhere and began circling the area. I believe he made a kill.
We eventually made our way into north pass of Shelter Island and saw two humpbacks.
On two separate occasions throughout the day we saw pods of Dall's porpoise near Vanderbilt reef.
