Sightings Report for April 22nd 2018
What a wonderful sunny Sunday, with light winds and calm waters around the Victoria area! Captain Gordon and Russ headed out on BC Tika and BC Luna to see who was in the area for the day! Sadly, no Orca were spotted in the Salish Sea yesterday. Passengers on BC Tika got to see a Dall's Porpoise, often mistaken for a young orca because of their black and white colouring.
A Stop by Race Rocks is always a hit! A National Ecological Reserve and popular haul out sight for many pinnipeds, including; Harbour Seals, California and Steller Sea Lions. They can be heard roaring and barking on the rocks directly above a kelp forest.
Just after Captain Kaegan left on BC Nova for an afternoon trip, a report of a humpback whale came in. The individual was near Vancouver and he decided to go for it!! Our passengers got to encounter this gentle giant as it cruised through Georgia Strait, with the coastal mountains in the skyline!
Stay tuned for what we encounter next!!
