Sighting Report for July 22, 2017
A great start to the weekend! The wind was low yet again keeping the water flat calm, making great conditions for spotting whales as they come to the surface to breathe.
There were several individual humpback whales spread throughout the Juan De Fuca Strait as they headed West to the open Pacific. We are lucky to have these gentle giants stop by the Salish Sea to feed and relax before they finish their long trip North to Alaskan waters!
Race Rocks Ecological Reserve is always full of life, where several seals and sea lions sun themselves on the rocks as they relax and interact with each other. Ollie the only local sea otter was also spotted hanging out the in the kelp forest, where he enjoys wrapping himself with the kelp in order to take an afternoon nap.
