Killer Whales

Lockroy to Melchoirs and on to Deception island. We were moving on as we knew there was weather on the way and Deception island was a must see. On the way to melcoirs we had our first pod of Killer whales. The next day , early in the morning we had a couple of humpbacks swimming very fast and close to Rosehearty.

Quite unusual until we noticed a killer whale trying to force one of the smaller Humpbacks down under by covering its blow hole. I think Roshearty broke up a mugging as the Killer whale headed off, at least for a bit.
