An amazing tour with a breaching humpback whale known as ‘Two Spot’ and a pod of killer whales that includes a young and incredibly rare ‘white’ Orca whale.
An amazing winter continues. Within 10 minutes of leaving the harbor we saw our first humpback whale. Continuing our search we found three more whale including a local favorite known as ‘Two Spot’. The nickname is due to the two circular spots on each fluke of its tail.
We also encountered a huge male elephant seal who was content to watch us as we watched him.
Before returning to Victoria we had the company of a pod of mammal hunting killer whales known as the T46B’s.
The incredibly rare Orca known as T46B1B and nicknamed Tl’uk has unusual skin pigmentation so that whereas the rest of the pod are high contrast black and white this animal is shades of grey.
A very interesting and unusual encounter.
