From the Wheelhouse:
Today was another great day! The sun was shining, and there were no rain clouds to be seen, so we were all quite happy! This morning guests enjoyed a ride to the back side of Malcolm Island, where we were able to observe 2 groups of fish eating killer whales. We were able to identify the groups as the A24 and A23 matrilines. The whales were spread out, and were feeding as well as traveling. On our way back to Telegraph Cove we were able to watch ‘Freckles’ the humpback whale, which is always a highlight.
This afternoon we headed out in hopes of finding the killer whales again, but unfortunately they were out of our range. This does happen occasionally, as the killer whales are constantly moving and do not stay in the area all of the time. Guests were happy to view ‘Twister’ the humpback whale amongst the Plumper Islands. As we traveled through Knights Inlet we were surrounded by spectacular scenery, and had many great photo opportunities.
A group of Dall’s porpoise, and about 15 harbour seals hauled out on a rock enjoying the sunshine, 50 rhinoceros auklets, 12 Bald eagles, and over 30 Northern phalaropes rounded out today’s sightings.
