Welcome to our new daily sightings feed! We thought you might like to check in and find out what’s been happening out on the water. So, from now on, you’ll find updates on daily sightings, right here, on our blog page.
Today, we had a fantastic morning, with an absolutely incredible show from a group of Transient Killer Whales just 25 minutes out of the Harbour at Race Rocks. It was an amazing viewing with 8-10 animals, grouped tightly together and surfacing frequently (the type of behaviour we often see from our Resident Killer Whales!). We also saw some tail slapping displays, with one of the whales spending quite a bit of time on its back. Being out at Race Rocks, this morning’s passengers also got a great look at some Harbour Seals and Sea Lions, hauled up on the rocks and basking in the sun.
In the afternoon we also had an awesome show with a family of Transient Killer Whales (T-37) just south of Discovery Island. It was an entertaining afternoon with lots of spyhopping and ‘porpoising’. The family of whales had a visiting male among them, which gave this afternoon’s guests a look at Killer Whale mating behaviour – not something you see everyday. Overall, it was a really lovely day filled with warm weather and plenty of whales – just the way we like it!
