A beautiful day on the water. The majestic mountains were an amazing backdrop for the seals we saw.

Harbour Seals are widespread along the Pacific Coast. They are found year round in and around harbours and the Islands off of Victoria that we frequent on our tours. These mammals are also an important food source for Bigg’s (Transient) Killer Whales. One seal is enough to feed one adult whale per day. A strong Harbour Seal population is likely the reason Bigg’s (Transient) Killer Whales are doing so well as a population right now.

Chatham Island is an area that we visit quite frequently on our tours. Bald Eagles, seals and many other animals can be spotted here depending on the day. Wild animals that we search for on our tours are predictably unpredictable. We never know what we are going to find.
