Sightings Report for September 27th 2018

Another lovely day in the Capital region! We are happy to see the sun continue to shine with calm waters are sticking around late into September. Our season is coming to a close in a few weeks but the whale action has yet to slow down.

The mammal eating Biggs orca have been frequenting the area all month, often seen in groups travelling through or hunting. This ecotype of orca remain quiet and work together to heard their prey items and always share their catch.

Humpback whales are still here feeding before leaving to tropical waters for breeding and calving. There has been a loose aggregation of them in the Juan de Fuca Strait following the tides as it pushes the zooplankton.

~ Stay tuned!
