Sightings Report for October 13th 2018

Time flies when everyday on the Salish Sea is a blast! We cannot believe our 2018 season is coming to an end. Yesterdays skies were clear and sunny with low winds, making the conditions ideal for whale watching, once again!

The mammal eating Biggs orca have been frequenting the area all month, often seen in groups travelling through or hunting. This ecotype of orca remain quiet and work together to heard their prey items and always share their catch.

Humpback whales are still here feeding before leaving to tropical waters for breeding and calving. There has been a loose aggregation of them in the Juan de Fuca Strait following the tides as it pushes the zooplankton.

~ Stay tuned!
