A Killer Whale spyhopping!
A Killer Whale spyhopping!

In September, Victoria starts to quiet down as summer comes to an end and students from around North America return to school. What many people do not realise is that September is an absolutely wonderful time to come whale watching! We have had gorgeous weather and equally good whale sightings over the past few weeks, and today was no exception!

This morning we headed out to San Juan Island to meet up with members of both L and J-Pod! The group was displaying typical hunting behaviour, as they were very spread out, dashing around the boats at speed. Our Skippers were able to the get our boats into a great position, so that our passengers were surrounded by the whales in almost every direction. The whales put on a great show, with breaches, tail slaps and spy hops to impress our guests!

If you are thinking of coming out with us, make no mistake – September is a fabulous time to get onboard a whale watching tour with SpringTide!
