Wonderful Westcoast

Today Marauder IV went off exploring the local waters. It was a chilly day but the water was flat and calm. We had lots of excited passengers on board scanning the horizon with their coffee and hot chocolates in hand. It wasn’t long before we came across out first species, Humpback Whales- and lots of them!

It was really a splendid sighting. We followed three Whales in particular. One of them kept raising it’s head out of the water which was really cool to see.

Fish was on the menu and it was being enjoyed by the Common Guillemots too!

We then headed towards Race Rocks Ecological Reserve in anticipation of finding some other marine wildlife. On the first rock we came to there was a pair of beautiful Bald Eagles and two juveniles with them. It was really something special to see the foursome. A little further on, we came across lots of Seals and Sea Lions too.

It was a wonderful day exploring on the West coast.
