Sightings Report for September 1st 2017
The first day of September was amazing!! Clear sunny skies and calm winds provided great conditions for spotting local cetaceans as they come to the surface to breathe.
There were reports of sightings before our fleet left the dock so our captains were eager to get on the water! Biggs orca (mammal eaters) have taken over with pods peppered throughout the Salish Sea. Several pods were working together to scan the coast and find their prey, with about 30 whales in the same area! What a rare sighting and great encounter for our passengers!
Humpback whales are still feeding around the kelp beds off Race Rocks Ecological Reserve, so a stop in to Race Rocks brings more than just sightings of the local pinnipeds.
