Killer Whale Tail Slap
Killer Whale Tail Slap

NOV 17 2014 – Another clear calm day with some promising reports of Killer Whales right from the get go. K Pod and L Pod members had been sighted earlier today west bound in Haro Strait. Once again Captain Ian was feeling lucky. He headed to Race Rocks Ecological Reserve first as he really didn’t want his guests to miss the 400 + Sea Lions bathing on the rocks. He kept his radios close by, always listening to the reports of Killer Whales heading his way. After showing his guests Steller Sea Lions, California Sea Lions, Harbour Seals and a couple of Bald Eagles he headed East towards the approaching pods. Soon his guests were watching tail slaps, spy hops and more from these playful Resident Killer Whales. But it didn’t stop there. 2 Humpback Whales appeared as Ian was on his way back to the dock. How can you just pass by two huge baleen whales?  So he didn’t… Ian extended the trip as the guests were just having too much fun. Ian heads out again tomorrow at 1pm, here’s hoping his luck stays with him as it has all month!
