MORNING TOURS

Several of our morning departure tours had great luck spotting Whales. In fact, they found Humpback Whales not too far from Victoria. The conditions were great and the weather was perfect! This made for an awesome day to cruise and see some Wild Life.

AFTERNOON TOURS

Within 30 minutes of our afternoon departures, we found Humpback Whales. Its amazing when you can quickly find Whales and spend lots of quality time watching them. It was the blow that was spotted first, gently dissipating in the sea breeze. We found the Whale due south of Victoria. It was a particular highlight when it fully extended its large tail, an adult for sure, and ducked down for a deep dive. After viewing the Whale we headed to Race Rocks Ecological Reserve.

At Race Rock Ecological Reserve we spotted some harbour seals hauled out in high numbers.

The most comical moment of the afternoon was provided by a Northern elephant seal “galumph-ing” it’s way up the boat ramp appearing to be chasing after a reluctant mate. We bid home good luck in his endeavour and cruised over to a lazing California sea lion. He was positioned on a dock, clearly happy with some alone time.
