Sightings Report for October 12th 2018
The sun was shining and the waters were calm as the fleet headed out. Reports of orca and humpback whales came in early so we were excited to get out there!
Our fleet spent the day out West with humpback and orca whales. Biggs Orca groups were picked up along the coastline of Sooke. One of our vessels had a close encounter as the whale took down a harbor seals right next to the boat, everybody’s got to eat!
There have been juvenile humpbacks feeding near Race Rocks Ecological Reserve! Often seen with their mouth gaping open as they break the surface to trap their lunch.
Lots of seals and sea lions can be seen (and smelt) relaxing along the shoreline of Race Rocks. Often heard barking at one another as they compete for space with the other males.
~ Stay tuned!
