J Pod with Mount Baker & StrongTide Zodiac
J Pod with Mount Baker & StrongTide Zodiac

March 30 2016 – Today was a wonderful wildlife day!  We spent most of the day with J Pod, one of our Southern Resident Killer Whale pods.  Captain Ian and Skipper Darren took Fastide and StrongTide and lots of excited guests east in search of critters.  They saw Bald Eagles, Harbour Seals and Steller & California Sea Lions.

But the highlight of the day was J Pod.  These Killer Whales were heading south from Vancouver when we saw them.  They were in resting mode and their diving pattern was synchronized.  This made for some awesome photos like the one you see above.  All of our guests were over the moon that they were enjoying Killer Whales on a sunny Spring day.

Captain Ian got some fantastic photos and we have shared them on our Facebook Page for you to enjoy.
