Sightings Report for July 21, 2017

Another overcast day with low winds in Victoria, kept the water calm and made for great conditions to spot the local cetaceans! 

Our fleet caught up with Biggs Orca (mammal eaters) throughout the day as they foraged and socialized heading South through the Juan De Fuca Strait. One of the pods was identified as the T49A's, consisting of a mother and her three calves, two known males and one unknown. Often the sex of the individual can be identified by their dorsal fin, however if the calf is young enough their fin has not "sprouted", making identification trickier. Other pods of Biggs orca were also encountered by East Point, with several individuals approaching the boat giving our guests a trip to remember!!

Stay tuned for what the weekend brings!!
