Well folks, it’s the North Pacific right whale crew back in action. Today is the day! We set off for Alaska and the crew will meet up together in Dutch Harbor tonight. Dutch Harbor is on Amaknak Island in Unalaska, Alaska, around 800 miles Southwest of Anchorage. You m...

I have recently returned to the Pacific Northwest from a month long trip to Hawaii. My trip to the beautiful islands was full of days on the beach, hikes to waterfalls, snorkeling in the warm water, and of course, looking for whales. There is a flux of people boarding...

We have seen some interesting responses from people when we tell them we are looking for a whale whose population has only around thirty left. Most people look at us, raise their eyebrows, tilt their head to one side, nod slowly up and down, and pause a bit before resp...

​It feels almost the right amount of time to reflect on our voyage of circumnavigating Vancouver Island; one day of reflection for each day underway. Orion returned to Seattle and was tied up at the dock thirty-seven nights ago, line two, then four, followed by one and...

We had a hard decision to make a couple days ago. We decided to start heading back down the west side of Vancouver Island, meaning we weren't going to make it to Haida Gwaii. When taking the weather forecasted, our schedule, the miles we still had to travel and the sh...

The last couple days have allowed us to really get to know Port Hardy and Port McNeil. We’ve been continuing more projects and logistics of the trip to prepare us for the next two weeks. Other than being able to check more things off our never ending to-do list, we met...

We titled our last blog post “Bearly Believeable” because after our incredible wildlife experiences we thought we had seen the magic of Blackfish Sound and Johnstone Strait. However, the last couple of days we have been able to explore places, like the Broughton Island...

These last couple days we have been able to check off a lot of "firsts" for the crew onboard. Not only are all the places we are going unfamiliar and unexplored by Orion herself, but also the crew has been able to add new species and populations to their personal lists...
