Out here in the Catalina Channel, we have Gray whales on the move right now and with them come the Orcas which have also been seen in the last few weeks, There was two orcas crusing inside the Avalon Mooring Field in Dec.

In 71' I saw a orca breach, center punching what I thought a the time was a sea lion, I later read in the paper it was in fact a Great White the orca had killed, this was a couple miles off Pt Loma.

Sharks; I've seen a few Blues, been diving with white tip reef and had close encounters with a couple of threshers, had one almost take the end of my finger off while photographing, (That was my fault, I hit him, not the other way around,) also had a 6' threasher swim under me once while photographing, I never saw either one, but everybody else did
