Sightings Report for August 9th 2018
Happy Thursday! An unusual day in the sense that the wind calmed down throughout the day, by the afternoon the water was fairly calm!
Reports of Resident Orca whales came in just after the fleet left the dock! They are headed back in from the open Pacific to scan the Salish Sea for their main prey item; Chinook Salmon! They chose this prey mostly due to the large size and nutritional value, smaller fish are not worth the effort of these top predators. A grey whale also popped up unexpectedly! They are here to feed on the small opposum shrimp along the rocky sea bed.
~ Stay tuned!!
