Sightings Report - May 5th 2019
Hola and Happy Cinco de Mayo!
We are beginning to gear up for the peak season, and the last week has gone by quickly! With a mix bag of weather from high winds to recently several days of sun and favorable wind conditions, BC Luna and BC Orca have spent a lot of time on the water. We have seen a few Grey and Humpback whales as they are slowly making their way into the Salish Sea and of course plenty of seals and sea lions, especially around Race Rocks!
Today we were with Bigg's Orca (mammal eaters) they were encountered near Salmon Bank, as they scanned the area for prey. They were sighted early in the afternoon heading south and soon we acquired and were enjoying these Killer Whales in less than 30 minutes after departing from the harbour. Captain Jeevan hung out with them on the afternoon tour, on the way home he picked up a Dall’s Porpoise. Way to go Captain!
Don’t forget to take advantage of our Spring Whale Sale and save 20% until the end of May!
~ Stay tuned for what we encounter next! ~
