This morning started out with some isolated fog and bit of rain here in Telegraph Cove, but once again that didn’t stop us from having a great morning! From start to finish the morning was amazing with between thirty to forty Pacific white-sided dolphins spotted just minutes after departure with short bursts of vocals! We had the most spectacular humpback

sightings! We saw lunge feed after lunge feed along with some wild and loud bird activity! With a grand total of seven humpbacks spotted this morning we were able to identify the humpbacks as “Domino”, “Inuksuk”, and “Galaxy” while the others remain unidentified! The fog and rain cleared up quickly revealing breath taking lighting, pair that with amazing bird activity and

whale sightings and you got yourself a fantastic morning and even more fantastic photo opportunities!

After advising the afternoon’s guests that we hadn’t seen orcas on the morning trip we quickly received word of reports of Transient (mammal eating) orcas that were in the area. We were fortunate enough to come across the

group of approximately eight Transient orcas and we were able to get some great looks at the group of T 100’s and the T 101’s! We were moving on after the excitement of spotting the orcas when another whale watching boat called us and advised us to keep a sharp eye out as there was a large group of dolphins headed right towards the orcas! The water became alive with dolphins

heading several different directions and orcas were breaching clear out of the water! We were unsure if the orcas had made a kill however there was a Steller sea lion caught in the middle amongst all the action and appeared to be injured. After the excitement we continued on and came across a total of ten humpback whales! Everywhere you looked you could spot a humpback whale and we

were able to ID the whales as “Frosty”, “Slash” aka “Humpless”, “Ripple” and her calf, “Guardian”, “Freckles”, “Yahtzee”, “Domino” and “Galaxy”! The weather conditions were unbelievably calm and warm for the last couple days of summer and the activity continues to be outstanding! Hard to believe the season is soon coming to a close!

There were several vessels out looking for the fish eating orca today, but it sounded like the group we viewed yesterday afternoon kept heading West, and out of our area. Which made today our first day without an orca sighting since July 30th. The lack of orca did not upset our crew or guests too much since it was a spectacular humpback day!

We happily viewed a total of 12 humpback whales in the morning and 10 in the afternoon. The activity out of these tremendously massive baleen whales was mind blowing! Guests were able to watch lunge feeding, trap feeding and bubble net feeding! Trumpeting was even heard from these whales on the afternoon tour. (For anyone who hasn’t heard a humpback trumpeting: it sends shivers down your spine.)

As if watching these behemoths use multiple feeding techniques wasn’t enough, we also got to see: tail slapping, tail fluking, long dives, shallow dives, pec slapping and even BREACHING! There were a couple of breaches seen in the distance, and one nearer by which allowed for some terrific photo opportunities.

The whales we were able to identify today are as follows: Domino, Argonaut, Freckles, Conger, Slash (aka ‘Humpless’), Frosty, Ripple & her calf, Inukshuk and Domino. At one point it looked like Domino and Inukshuk were displaying some ‘social’ behaviors as they were doing tight circles close to each other, and spending lots of time on the surface.

6+ Dall’s porpoise, 200+ Steller sea lions, 30-40 harbour seals, 2 rhinoceros auklets, lots of common murres, a few bald eagles, 20 Northern phalaropes,2 belted Kingfishers, 1 pelagic cormorant and our very first sighting (this season) of a sooty shearwater were the cherries on top of a perfect day!

As we woke up this morning we found a little bit of fog lingering over Telegraph Cove but once we got all our guests checked in and our Captain all set to go with a boarding list full of people from all over the world we headed out into perfect conditions.

Once again we found the A30’s and A42’s travelling along together, these whales have stayed in the area now for approximately 3 weeks and it’s wonderful seeing these 17 orcas and  some with large dominant dorsal In the group. As we watched these orcas travel together along came the pestering dolphins that were all over these whales.

Shortly after we spotted 3 humpback whales one was identified as “Cutter” by our onboard biologist Sophia, we also cruised past 200 + Steller sea lions who were mostly hauled out on the rocks enjoy the cool calm morning.

As the MV Lukwa returned to Telegraph Cove and grabbed the next group of lucky guests we headed back out in search for more marine wildlife!

Right off the bat the A30’s and A42’s were westing across Blackfish Sound still being pestered by some Pacific white sided dolphins.

At a distance we managed to see a humpback whale breach as well as 5 other humpbacks who were identified as “Ridge”, “Domino”, “Inuksuk”, “Argonaut” and “Cutter”. Guests onboard all managed to get a shot at the picture perfect tail fluke of a few different whales with BC’s lush green back grounds!

Everyone also got the chance to see and smell 200+ Steller Sea lions that were enjoying the afternoon sun just a little too much.

Throughout the day bird watchers on board feasted their eyes on Rhinoceros Auklets, Common murres, Bald eagles, belted kingfishers, harlequin ducks, pelagic cormorants and even a crane as the afternoon boat returned to Telegraph Cove!

Once again great weather and great sightings with lots of orcas and humpback whales! One of the highlights of the morning was the amazing vocals that we were able to hear on our hydrophone (under water microphone) with absolutely no boat noise and some very vocal whales as they foraged over a large area. On morning trip we saw a grand total of 8 humpback whales and our onboard biologist Sophia was able to identify these whales as “Cutter”, “Moon star” who were both bubble netting near Bold Head. We also spotted “Argonaut” and “Slash” aka Humpless, and “Slash did a large lunge feed in a bait ball. Afterwards we had a large group of Dall’s porpoises chasing a group of orcas! Talk about excitement!! Throughout the morning we managed to see 10 Pacific white sided dolphins, 200+ Steller Sea lions and tons of Dalls porpoises. The morning’s pacific flyway activity consisted of Rhinoceros Auklets, Common Murres, Bald Eagles, Northern phalaropes, belted kingfishers and pelagic cormorants great for all those bird watchers on board including our Captain Wayne. On the 1:00pm departure the A30’s and the A42’s all grouped together and were westing North west of black fish sound, It was beautiful see this large group of whales travelling together in their natural families. Every guest on board had their cameras just clicking away looking to grab that picture perfect moment. Shortly after we found 6 humpback whales and three were identified as “Corporal”, “Inukshuk” and “Conger”. We saw several tail slaps delivered by “Conger” from a distance with large splashes. Before we headed back to Telegraph Cove we stopped to watch 200+ Steller Sea Lions as they soaked in the afternoon sun! What a wonderful day on the waters of beautiful British Columbia.

Here we go again folks! Once again excellent weather conditions with calm seas, warm and sunny skies! The morning started off with some brief fog as we departed into the mist however the fog quickly lifted to reveal  two groups of orcas, the A 30’s and the A 42’s of which were continuing to forage! We found the group with a large group of Pacific white-sided dolphins that were

targeting the orcas forcing the whales to take long dives and unfortunately we were unable to pick up on any vocals from our hydrophone! After the dolphin excitement we were fortunate enough to come across five humpback whales and we were able to get some great looks and identify the whales as “Gemini”, “Inukshuk”, “Argonaut”, “Ridge” and “Freckles”, five for five on the ID front!

Photo Credit: Alison Ogilvie

The Steller sea lion sightings continue to amaze each day with over 200 Steller sea lions spotted! For the bird lovers on board we were able to spot hundreds of common murres, eagles and northern phalaropes to cap off an eventful three and a half hours!

The afternoon trip started with reports of orcas that had traveled through

Photo Credit: Alison Ogilvie

Blackfish Sound and as we were just minutes from Telegraph Cove we came across the group of A 30’s and A 42’s right away! The group seemed to be stuck in the current and were spread out once again with Pacific white-sided dolphins everywhere surrounding the orcas! This afternoon brought us an abundance of humpback whale sightings with a total of eight humpbacks spotted!

Photo Credit: Alison Ogilvie

We were able to identify the whales as “Conger”, “Cutter”, “Ridge”, and “Domino” not quite eight for eight of the ID front but not half bad! This afternoon we were also very excited and thrilled to have witnessed two full breaches, it’s really an amazing sight to see over 30 tons of humpback whale fully out of the water! We also witnessed some tail flukes giving guests on board great photo

Photo Credit: Alison Ogilvie

opportunities, not to mention the humpback blows glistening in the sun with rainbow colours between six to ten meters in the sky! We couldn’t leave without getting a second look at the massive group of over 200 Steller sea lions, however this time around there were a lot more in the water as it was close to high tide! With days like this it’s hard to ever be in a bad mood around

Our day yesterday started in beautiful sunshine, calm, mild waters and with 20-30 pacific white sided dolphins just 5 minutes outside of Telegraph Cove! These dolphins were feeding and forcing fish into small bays near Telegraph Cove. We heard some great vocals as we dropped down our under water microphone (hydrophone) and as we started to pull away these dolphins began jumping in and out of our wake as we pulled away. Over the VHF radio came a report of orcas quite a far distance away and we had to force ourselves past several humpback whales to try and find these elusive orcas. Well as we travelled farther and farther out the fog moved right in to where the orcas were and as soon as we shut off the MV Lukwa we could hear the orcas all around with blows breaking the water and as soon as we dropped down our hydrophone and heard some amazing calls going back and forth. Once the fog lifted just enough we had an amazing look at the A30’s and A42’s! After everyone had their picture perfect moment we headed back to Telegraph only returning a half an hour late! The crew quickly cleaned up the vessel, loaded up with new guests then ventured into the same area as the morning trip. What happy days it was with orcas, orcas and more orca with all 17 of the A30 and A42’s! We had the best vocals coming from these whales with no other boats being around to interrupt our under water microphones. Afterward we managed to see 5 humpback whales “Argonaut”, “Guardian” and 3 others that were not able to be identified by our onboard biologist, 100+ Steller sea lions hauled out on rocks basking in the sun, 30-40 Pacific white sided dolphins and what looked like playtime with 4-5 Steller sea lions! The day ended up being wonderful with great sightings to carry on through September as well as the great weather we are having!

Once again we have been blessed with another beautiful sunny day! The seas were calm, the skies were clear and the sun was warm on our faces just as it has been over the last few weeks! This morning’s wildlife sightings were fantastic as we came across two groups of orcas, a group of twelve A30’s and a group of five A42’s! The two groups were in a large circle in which we were

Photo Credit: Sophia Merritt

able to witness a lot of socializing as well as surface time! We were fortunate enough to witness spy hops, tail slaps, and other behaviour such as rubbing their heads against each other! And of course with lots of youngsters in the two groups there was also plenty of playtime activity! The excitement of the morning continued with a group of over twenty Pacific white-sided dolphins travelling at

Photo Credit: Sophia Merritt

high speeds past us heading in the opposite direction! It was an amazing sight as we headed into Blackfish Sound as everywhere you looked you could see a blow from a humpback whale! We were able to get some great looks at humpback whales and we were able to identify four of the whales as “Ripple” and her calf, “Conger”, and “Corporal”.  As we continued along we were able to

Photo Credit: Sophia Merritt

come across the group of over 100 Steller sea lions hauled out on the rocks of a small island close by! As we mentioned in yesterday’s blog there is definitely a noticeable reduction of marine birds in the area but bird lovers do not fret, we are still spotting great numbers of common murres!

The afternoon trip had the same great

Photo Credit: Alison Ogilvie

experience as the morning trip as we were able to locate the two groups or orcas, the A30’s and the A42’s. The group was still resting and travelling along at a very slow pace; it’s amazing to witness such a large group all so close together and surfacing in almost perfect synchronization! Once again the afternoon brought us an abundance of humpback sightings and we were able to

Photo Credit: Alison Ogilvie

identify the afternoon’s humpbacks as “Ripple” and her calf, “Jigger”, “Slitz”, “Argonaut”, “Freckles” and “Cutter”! The humpback whale “Cutter” astounded us with five full breaches of which our marine naturalist Alison Ogilvie was able to get some great photos! We were also able to get a look at the large numbers of Steller sea lions continuing to enjoy the afternoon sun!

Well it was another incredible day here in Telegraph Cove wouldn’t you believe it?! This morning’s trip had our very own Jackie Hildering providing a full boat of students from the K’ak’ot’lats’i School with her knowledge and experience of the marine environment! And what a day it was with orcas everywhere and their calls being heard from our underwater hydrophone! The

Photo Credit: Sophia Merritt

calls were intriguing for the children and entertaining for the adults as they tried to imitate the calls as best as they could! It was a great day for humpback sightings as well with a total of eight humpbacks! With flat, calm seas their blows could be seen from far off in the distance. The excitement continued throughout the morning with bow and wake riding Dall’s porpoise joining us as

we cruised along! As we continued along past the coastlines we were also fortunate enough to see over 100 Steller sea lions hauled out on the rocks! What a fantastic morning with a fantastic group of kids!

The sun continued to beat down on us into the afternoon and with guests coming to join us from all over the world

Photo Credit: Sophia Merritt

they were treated to glass like conditions on the water! We picked up right where we left on from the morning’s trip with great sightings! We came across the A24’s and A30’s all grouped together in a resting line and what a sight it was as their blows hung in the air with the sun glistening over the water making for great photo opportunities. We were also fortunate to come across between six to

eight humpbacks whales of which we got to witness a couple lunge feeding! We were able to identify the humpbacks as “Slash” aka “Humpless”, “Ripple” and her calf, “Conger” and “Corporal” the other whales we unfortunately were unable to ID! The afternoon also got to witness the Steller sea lions in their great numbers as they were crowded onto the rocks at high tide with some

even higher on the island into the tree line! There were also lots grouped together in the kelp beds below! We also took note of a real decline in rhinoceros auklet sightings over the last three days however we are still spotting common murres in large numbers! As we continue into September things still show no sign of slowing down here in Telegraph Cove!

A note for all of our readers: Today was one of those days that just exhaust you, and make you feel like you need your head mounted on a swivel!

It was another amazing day out on the water! The sun was shining, and there was wildlife everywhere you looked. We caught fleeting glimpses of many humpback whales as we were on our way to find the orcas. Then this morning’s tour saw a total of 17 orca, 12 whales from the A30 matriline and 5 whales from the A42 matriline. These whales went from being spread out and foraging to being grouped up together. When we lowered our hydrophone we were even fortunate to hear some terrific vocals. After watching the whales for a while we were then able to watch the humpback known as ‘Ripple’ lunge feeding with her calf. There were 100s of Steller sea lions hauled out on the rocks enjoying the morning sunshine.

This afternoon we were able to watch the same group of orca that were sighted on the morning tour. These whales were once again foraging and making super calls, that is until the Pacific white-sided dolphins showed up. The dolphins then  ‘swarmed’ the orca, causing them to make longer dives and go quite silent. Then the group of dolphins left the orca and took off after a humpback whale. Upon the dolphin ‘mobbing’ the humpback began trumpeting. Later on we discovered another group of 100-200 dolphins who were very actively bow and wake riding along the Lukwa. The dolphins were also jumping out of the water and giving guests great opportunities for photos. We then saw the 2 humpback whales known as ‘Argonaut’ and ‘Crescent’ who did a couple of great tail flukes, allowing for more terrific photos! Bald eagles, common murres and rhinoceros auklets kept our bird watchers happy. And oh, did we mention that the dolphins were interacting with the Steller sea lions too?

It was a very active, very WILD day today!

Man oh man; are these posts starting to sound a little familiar or what? Our great sightings, and absolutely deluxe weather conditions, have been amazing! Not only for our guests from across the world, but for our crew too (who have the ‘tough’ job of being on the water every day)!

On this morning’s trip the water was as smooth as glass, giving us a stunning view of the first pod of orcas we found. Captain Wayne counted a total of 17 orcas who were foraging in the nearby area. These whales were calling back and forth to each other, as well as using echolocation. The extremely clear sounds we were able to pick up using our on-board hydrophone (thanks in much to a lack of other boats in the area to cause noise underwater) were phenomenal, and even had a couple of ladies in tears! We then moved on to discover 5 humpback whales nearby who were foraging and lunge feeding.  Our on board biologist was able to identify one of these massive baleen whales as “Twister”. Common murres and rhinoceros auklets were also enjoying the bounty of small fish to be found as they fed alongside the humpbacks. To top it all off, there were a couple of dolphins in the mix too! We finished off our tour by viewing 80+ Steller sea lions that were hauled out on some small rocky islands enjoying the sunshine. It was one of those mornings where you don’t want to leave all of the activity to be seen, but it was time to pick up the passengers for our afternoon tour so we could share everything with them too!

This afternoon’s trip was just as fantastic as the morning tour, with the same group of orcas in the same spot as we left them. This time the whales were grouped up in a large resting/travelling line, which was absolutely stunning to see! We were enjoying the orcas as we were then surrounded by lunge feeding humpbacks! In total we counted 6 humpback whales “Ripple” and calf, “Conger”, “Corporal” and 2 more that we unfortunately were not able to identify. One humpback whale did about 4-5 huge tail slaps, which delighted everyone on-board. Our next sighting was a brief glance of some Dall’s porpoise. We then headed off to have a look at the Steller sea lions, and even though it was high tide, we were able to view about 40 of these huge ‘bears of the sea’ as they swam in the kelp beds.

It was another absolutely phenomenal day on the beautiful waters of British Columbia!
