Sightings Report for April 27th 2018
It was another sunny in the greater Victoria area! The winds built up throughout the day, so we only sent out a morning tour. The amazing captain Russ headed out on BC Luna to discover who was in the Salish Sea for the day!
Several pods of Bigg's Orca (mammal eaters) were encountered near Saturna Island. They often scan the channels looking for prey, and yesterday was no exception! After they were successful they shared their kill as a family unit. Seals, Sea Lions and Bald Eagles were also encountered throughout the trip. The local pinnipeds will often rest at the surface of the water and quickly submerge themselves when startled!
Stay tuned for whats next!!
