Well what a beautiful afternoon! The water was as calm as can be in Blackfish sound, and we were able to spot 10 humpback whales through out the duration of the trip.

These humpback whales were identified by our on board naturalist Sophia Merritt as “Moonstar” (who did 20+ tail slaps that splashed water everywhere), “Domino”, “Slash” (aka Humpless), “Freckles”, “Inukshuk”, “Argonaut” and “Cutter”. Towards the end of the trip we also had some short trap feeding from one of the humpback whales, which was so exciting to see!

As we headed back to Telegraph Cove we stopped to view 30+ Steller sea lions hauled out on the rocks, 20+ harbour seals doing the same thing, and tons of bird activity. We saw rhinoceros auklets, common murres, bald eagles, 100’s of northern phalaropes and 2 belted kingfishers!

All in all a wonderful day here in Telegraph Cove.
