Sightings Report for October 10th 2018

What a beautiful day on the water, the sun was shining and the waters were calm! Although there is only eleven days left of our season, the whale encounters have not slowed down!

Throughout the day we encountered several groups of Biggs Orca. These mammal eaters were spotted west of Victoria in the Juan de Fuca Strait. Both groups were seen searching for and taking down their morning snacks. As a group the pod works together to corral and trap their prey, before sharing it as a family.

The humpback whales have been stealing the show lately! They have been seen lunging out of the water to trap small bait fish at the surface and into their mouths. Its incredible to see a large animal propel itself out of the water with ease!

~ Stay tuned!
