Sightings Report for June 25th 2018
The month has flown by, as we gear up for Canada Day! Yesterday was a windy day, meaning the waters would be choppy. Good thing our vessels and Captains handle rough seas well!!
Reports of Biggs Orca (mammal eaters) came in as our Captains left the dock with BC TIKA, LUNA, and NOVA! They were seen north of Orcas Island, chasing and hunting prey. Their diet consists mostly of harbour seals and porpoise, and we often encounter them chowing down! By afternoon the pods were near Vancouver and quickly moving out of range. The pods were identified as T65A's and T49A's, who are known to hang out together!
Humpback whales were encountered in the afternoon!! They were seen foraging throughout the Salish sea. We are so lucky to have local waters that can support so much life!!!
~ Stay tuned for whats next!!
