Upon some research the orcas currently talking sound most like Northern Residents. I know the A pod has been hanging out a lot, so it might be them.
16 Jul 2018 06:09:10 PDT

Strong orca calls at 08:56AM EST. Not sure from which pod, as I haven't learned to distinguish the dialects yet.

I remember when Springer came home! We watched the tug go by-with so much hope in our hearts for her-and look at her now! Wonderful story! Well worth the read. XxI even found a black/white rock at the beach that day-it is my Springer rock, in my outdoor flower pot. <3

Hi Dawniel, the audio button has not worked for me for a while (some plugin issue I could not solve) but you can access the audio stream directly under
11 Jul 2018 04:12:33 PDT

Hi Dawniel...I access the Orcalive network from the Internet is awesome to sleep too..Orcas love to wake you up at nite when the sea is quiet and its just them talkin. Keep trying...maybe post what kind of computer you have, and someone with tech knowledge can help.
10 Jul 2018 18:55:00 PDT

Hi Lori! Yes,I always welcome rain. I tried turning off the audio on the live youtube videos, then turning the audio button to on, but I still didn't get sound. A blank mini screen popped up with no sound. It must be a setting I need to adjust on my computer or something.

Morning Dawniel...nice rain this morning in Carlsbad! For underwater mics click on the AUDIO button upper right corner on this site, next to Red donate button. As I type, calls on Critical Point, near rubbing beaches!
10 Jul 2018 06:29:57 PDT

I can't wait to see them on the live cams. I was watching the under water cam earlier, are there jelly fish in the water? I saw what looked like baby jelly fish.

Hello everybody. It has been quite some time since I posted here but I do check in now and then. I have just been scrolling through the comments for the last couple of months and noticed that there has not been mention of the passing of a true OL lover. Kathy Lightheart, aka Gardenkat passed at the end of April. Inish and I had the pleasure of meeting Kathy and Don in August of 2005 at the time of the OL Reunion. She was a wonderful, funny and spent many hours with the whales. She will be missed.

Digging deep in my heart to share this joy with Corky...hoping for some images and songs I can bring to her this week poolside when I visit her. Hope you all join me in spirit to connect her to home and her beautiful wild soul.

Dolphins now fleeing west followed closely by 6-7 orcas - long dives letting them slowly close. Not a good Sunday for dolphins.

Dolphins now travelling east in mid strait - guess they didn't like Alert Bay.

250 (maybe 252) white sided dolphins past Stephenson Islets on their way to Alert Bay.

Welcome ladies..and gents. I15's, was it last year that the humpbacks traveled with them, and sang their calls? Just waiting for the duet!

Jan@UK and cori@4a Grove Road I don't know what the audio issue is but I have downloaded the TuneIn radio app which is free and you can add a customised link to listen to Orca - live. The link I added was this one.
03 Jun 2018 11:37:34 PDT

Dawniel@Carlsbad, CA It's a bit early yet in the season for the Northern Residents although the Humpback Whales are arriving. Keep an eye on things and hopefully things will get busier over the next month or so. X

I used to visit this site a lot when there were only mics in the water and no cameras, several years back. There were orcas all the time. I've been re-visiting a lot and I never seem to see orcas. Do they not frequent this area as often anymore?

Without any hesitation I would give the little that I have to spend the rest of my life living in a tent and hoping to see a free orca someday

SO glad to see you are still going, but I would have hoped the stream would be HTML5 by now. :( I can't seem to find anyway to listen to the audio on linux. PS your faq says you're still using RealPlayer, but the page source indicates Windows Media Player
