Sighting Report for June 20 2017
Although the windy conditions blew the cloud cover out of the area bringing sunny skies, it made for rough waters as Captain Jim, Gord, and Miles set out on the morning tours. All boats went North to encounter a surprising number of Humpback whales, where several individuals were seen breaching, and tail slapping at the surface. This behavior is not often observed in these waters, but is thought to be a way of communication and social behavior between individuals. The impact of their large bodies and limbs is great for making loud sounds that radiate through the water quickly and over long distances.
Unfortunately our afternoon tours had to be rescheduled or cancelled due to the increasing winds and deteriorating water conditions.
