is the orcalive audio synchronous with the orcalab cams? There are humpbacks breaching at orcalab right now but I can't hear them on underwater audio.

Just for people who havenít already seen it, watch Salmon Confidential about a critical part of our ocean ecosystem and an integral orca food source, and the community trying to protect it:

Beautiful Humpback Whales...I love your story!

Java Jen, are you saying when you click on the "Orca Live" small window...there is no sound? When I go to the Home page and click on "Orca Live"...I have sound and it brings me back to the community page. Does that make any sense to you? Not meaning to be rude...but do you have your audio open at the bottom of your screen and not with an "X?"

Hi Maryellen! Thanks for the info. Windows 10 does have WMP. I thought I looked this up. Oh well... So, I guess my problem is, I don't know how to get this site's hydrophone audio to work. I have audio on on the community page and then I go to the home page and click the Orca sound tab. It opens a smaller box and that is all. Any idea what I am doing incorrectly now?

Java Jen, in response to your audio question. I have a laptop with Windows 10. Just did a "Search" on my machine and found that it came with Windows Media Player. Perhaps you have WMP and it's somehow not playing correctly...not properly activated. Perhaps check your settings. Best info I can offer. MaryEllen aka HumpbacksAreMyFave ;)

Question about the audio. I see it requires Windows Media Player. Windows10 doesn't do WMP. Anyone with Windows 10 able to get the audio? How are you doing it? Thanks in advance! Jen

Sorry about that, Lori! Things are more complicated here now, tried to figure out how to do the spooky sea lions Halloween pumpkin show but didn't succeed. Next time maybe, meanwhile hope you had a great spooky Halloween!

Hi Paul and Helena. Update from the East. Still running tours in Campbell River as the weather and whale action has been incredible. Went through some id's from the past 2 days encounters. On Oct 26th at 9 am or so a large pod of Northern Residents went south past CR to the Gulf. We caught up wioth them off salmon Point a couple hours later. Looks like we had G17's (saw G50 G59) G2 matriline and G17 matriline animals again. Yesterday the 27th they passed CR in the am and were seen at 1600 at Chatham point Westing hard. Yesterday at 4pm we spent time with the Biggs orca T101's and T102 and also found Sam T046C2 with this Gang! Then at 1800 hrs as the sun went behind the mountains and the sky went red we ran smack dab into all of J POD Southern Resident Orcas off of Cape Mudge foraging ! We were able to ID some of the key members and assume all of J Pod on scene. over 60 Orcas in the local area today just incredible!!

Good morning, everyone! Itís been a while since the last time I came here but tonight I decided to come and see if there are any orcas on cam before go to bed. Itís just past midnight so I canít stay long though. Hopefully you all have a good day and enjoy orcas as long as you can! Good night!

used to be able to watch cameras on Internet Explorer 11. Since sometime in Sept'17 keep getting message "Your browser does not currently recognize any of the video formats available. Click here to visit our FAQs about HTML5". When click there, at the bottom where they list supported browsers Internet Explorer is not listed. When go to your site through Chrome or Firefox your live cams play. Going to site via You Tube, through IE, is the same, all other videos play but yours. Have been in touch with Microsoft Support and they say the "problem" is at your end and not with IE. Did you do something that resulted in this or ??

Hi OL and Paul and Helena. Update on the NR's past Campbell RIVER last night. Report at 1030 am of Orca rounding Chatham point had me thinking a large gangroup of Biggs at first. Then as we were getting closer we heard they were interacting with Lags so mind switched to Ressies! Getting on scene in Discovery Passage and watching almost 30 puffs reflect across the mist from Elk Bay was amazing. On scene first at 1145 for a while down Discovery. Then we picked them up again later at your 6pm as they continuedo to head Southeast. At 7 pm last night the entire group went south of the Cape Mudge Marker and by 8 pm were seen angling toward the Powell River side of the Gulf. My id's of the Orca include the G2 and G27 matrilines plus possibly some G3 matrililine animals but that is not confirmed. They were all small fins and Sprouter a no large males and maybe 27-30+ as they were hard to get a solid number.

I just want to thank you for this incredible website. I am from Germany and I like orcas a lot. But honestly I am sure that I will never have the chance to see them, so for me this site is so amazing :) Thank you !

So sad to hear about Twyla. It seems we have lost another great soul who protected all she loved and fought for. I have been very quiet and I don't comment much anymore but I still do come to orcalive and hear the orcas if they are around, one of the most magical experiences of hearing orcas in the wild.
23 Sep 2017 12:00:48 PDT

They are so beautiful

17 Sep 2017 09:08:29 PDT

I can't stop watching the live cameras, I might finally see an Orca for the first time in my life! I don't even mind that I'm not actually there to see them with my own two eyes. This website is incredible!
