A family group consisting of adult females and sub-adults were milling around, literally going with the flow of the tide north. We enjoyed watching the ocean’s top predators in the glow of the afternoon sun, seeing them surface and trying to spot a couple of smaller calves in between the matriarchs.
A very peaceful way to spend an afternoon. After observing the Whales we headed south and made a pit stop by Discovery Island to say hello to some Seals. Interesting to see the major prey species of the transient Killer Whales, another link in the food chain. A reminder that all animals in the Salish sea have their own place in the ecosystem.
