Sighting Report for July 10, 2017
From the wind forecast we were again expecting a more adventurous day on the water. Our guests on the morning expeditions were excited and pumped to see what we would encounter. Shortly after pushing off the dock we received reports of a large group of orca Southeast of Victoria. Our morning trips eagerly headed that way and were stoked to encounter a large group of Bigg's orca (mammal hunters).
The wind did pick up quite extensively in the afternoon, which did limit our ability to re-encounter the orca, as they were located in the rougher waters. However, our tours did pickup a couple of interactive humpback whales close to Victoria.
Once again we did have to cancel our sunset cruise expeditions due to the high winds and water surface conditions, which we deemed to be too unsafe for our guests.
Another successful yet adventurous day on the water in the Pacific Northwest.
Stay tuned to see what happens on the water today!
