Dall's Porpoise on Grand Day Tour July 6


The Grand Day Tour takes kayakers out to Aialik Bay's Holgate Arm in a small tour boat. Along the way it is common to view humpback whales, orcas (killer whales), Stellar sea lions, puffins, and the fastest marine mammal, Dall's porpoise. This porpoise is named after American naturalist W. H. Dall, averages 6-7 feet long, weighs approximately 300 pounds, and can reach speeds of up to 35 mph. Here they are playing in the bow wake of the Stellar Explorer on our way out of Ressurection Bay.
