Sightings Report for May 27 2018

Another sunny Sunday in the greater Victoria area! Our captains were excited to leave the dock and discover what animals were around for the day!!

We caught up with humpbacks hanging out in the waters south of Victoria. These gentle giants are here to feed in our nutrient rich waters for the summer! They were first spotted near Race Rocks Ecological Park, a chain of islands littered with the local pinnipeds. Being so close, a stop in was a must! Most seals and sea lions bask in the sun along the rocks and are often heard barking at one another.

A pod of Biggs Orca (mammal eaters) popped up in the afternoon, so we went for it! That means our passengers got the chance to encounter two different whale species!! Another great day on the water.

~Stay tuned!!
