Double Whale Day

The good weather is back along with the Humpbacks! A trip over to the Canadian Gulf Islands during our whale watching tour, had a world full of wonder for us to find!
A sweet start with some adorable Harbour Seals before a spotting a few Bald Eagles and a Turkey Vulture. A great start to our adventure with so much wildlife spotted even before the whales!  

Check them out in the photos below!


Our patience was rewarded with the sight of a young Humpback Whale off of North Pender Island. This young Humpback Whale was travelling at a relaxed pace which was great for everyone on board to get a good look and enjoy our time with this whale. They were identified with the unique coloration and markings of their tail flukes and this whale was BCZ0414 aka "Zephyr". A young Humpback born in 2011, it was great to see them back in these waters again!

Our lucky day wasn't over as a little further South we headed down and came across some Bigg's Killer Whales! The pod we got to see were the T065a's and they were having a nice afternoon travelling west.

One last stop to look at some Steller Sea Lions before we headed across the Strait back home. A fantastic trip with loads of wildlife and two species of whales!

Thanks to all who joined Captain Rich and Naturalist Shauna! We look forward to seeing you all again! Photos/videos are cropped & were taken with a canon camera using a telephoto lens
