Sighting Report for June 18, 2017
Despite the rain and cold weather it was a great day on the Salish Sea with reported sightings even before Captain Russ and Gordon left the dock!
A pod of transient (mammal eaters) orcas was encountered near Hein Bank, South East of Victoria working together to kill and consume a seal.
A Humpback whale was spotted lunge feeding by gaping its mouth and thrusting itself to the surface, which is a technique used when foraging on small plankton species such as krill. Guests on BC TIKA were lucky to encounter this unique behavior so close up as the whale was feasting beside the boat!
