Victoria Day Weekend

We had a fantastic time celebrating Victoria Day weekend along with all our passengers. Multiple tours took place and each tour had an unique and exciting whale watching experience!
Friday 19th, was another double whale species day (we have been having many in recent weeks). A straight journey over to Active Pass and onwards resulted in everyone's favourite sight; Bigg's Killer Whales!  The other whale species you ask? This tour also got to see some Harbour Porpoises! Porpoises are also whales, they are part of the group of toothed whales called Odontocetes. Fun fact about these fun-sized whales; porpoises are more closely related to narwhals and belugas than to the true dolphins! They are quite shy though so when spotted they don't hang around like other cetaceans we see on our tours.

Double whale luck continued on to Saturday, when both Orcas and a Humpback whale were spotted on the tours. This time the tour travelled further north towards Bowen Island in the our daily whale search.

See the Humpback Whales and Orcas below!

Two days of whizzing around the Gulf Islands and their passes and a day in the tranquil waters of Howe Sound, it was truly a weekend to remember for everyone on board.
Seems like the whales around the Salish Sea were also celebrating this weekend!

Thanks to all who joined Captains Scott, Richard & Elliot and Naturalists Selena & Camryn along with crew member Ruana! We look forward to seeing you all again! Photos/videos are cropped & were taken with a canon camera using a telephoto lens
