Sightings Report for July 16th 2018
What a lovely way to start the week!! The skies were clear and the sun was bringing the heat to the capital region!
We spotted multiple humpbacks feeding in the morning, as well as several pods of Bigg's Killer Whales (mammal eaters) throughout the day. We were very lucky to encounter these mammal-eating orcas as they successfully hunted porpoises.
Our captains also made a stop at Race Rocks Ecological Reserve, which is especially beautiful on a sunny day like today! A couple of our vessels really lucked out when they stumbled on a grey whale, a rare sight here during this time of year.
Captain Jim and Captain Kaegan came across some very curious Bigg's Killer Whales again in the afternoon, as well as some more humpback whales, sea lions, otters, and seals.
After such an awesome day on the water, we're so excited to see what tomorrow brings!!
