Sightings Report for May 12th 2018
Things are heating up in Victoria this weekend! Clear sunny skies bring so much heat, that the cool ocean air is a welcomed relief. We have seen whales everyday this week, but not without the great effort of our great captains and extended range!!
Biggs orca (mammal eaters) move through the area quickly and several pods have been encountered this past week. We are not seeing them every day yet, but their presence is increasing!!!
Humpback and Minke whales are regularly encountered. Both species of baleen whales are here to take advantage of the zooplankton and bait fish in the water! The Salish Sea is so rich with nutrients that it can also support an ecosystem of many other marine mammals including; seals sea lions, otters, porpoise and dolphins!
Stay tuned for what we encounter next!!
