Sightings Report for September 14th 2018

Its really feeling like Fall around here! The day began with sunny skies but by the afternoon rain clouds moved over Victoria. Go thing our fully enclosed zodiac, BC Luna was scheduled to go out, and our passengers stayed warm and dry in the heated cabin!

We had the chance to encounter Biggs orca foraging throughout the Salish Sea! This ecotype eats marine mammals, so they live in small pods of roughly 3-4 individuals and work together to hunt. An incredible sight to see these top predators at work!

There are so many humpback whales feeding west of Sooke, in the mouth of the Juan de Fuca Strait. Over 50 individuals have been hanging out in loose aggregations as they feed before leaving on their long migratory journey to southern waters.

~ Stay tuned!
