Tuesday, June 5, 2018 – M.V. Lukwa
Today’s Sightings: Humpback Whales (Ripple and Calf, Inukshuk), Steller Sea Lions, Dall’s Porpoises, Pacific Harbour Seals, Bald Eagles, Common Murres, Rhinoceros Auklets, and Pigeon Guillemots.
What an experience today, West Coast style! The calf of Ripple the Humpback Whale was very active today, slapping his/her tail and rolling at the surface. Steller Sea Lions came out of the water, different Seabirds flew by, and an Eagle was seen swooping down to fish. A young Pacific Harbour Seal pup was seen, as well as two chicks in A Bald Eagle nest! So wondrous to see the young of so many animals today.
