Sightings Report for August 16th 2018
The smoke has cleared up in the greater Victoria area despite the amount of fires on Vancouver Island. There has been light winds throughout the area all day blowing out the smoke and making for bumpy water conditions. Luckily our vessels are built to handle rough waters!
In the morning our fleet caught up with the many feeding Humpback whales in the area! These gentle giants are always friendly and a joy to encounter. they were all very relaxed and seemed to be sleeping as they calmly hung out at the surface for several breathing cycles and made shallow dives.
In the afternoon Biggs Orca (mammal eaters) were picked up east of Victoria. They were encountered scanning the area for potential prey and successfully snacking!!
~ Stay tuned!
