Thursday, June 7, 2018 – M.V. Lukwa
Today’s Sightings: Humpback Whales (Ripple and Calf, Argonaut), Dall’s Porpoises, Steller Sea Lions, Pacific Harbour Seals, Bald Eagles, Common Murres, Rhinoceros Auklets, and Pigeon Guillemots.
Today we got a true taste of the Wet, West Coast! And great wildlife sightings as well. Argonaut the Humpback Whale was in the area, near Steller Sea Lions. Ripple and her calf were cruising very close to the steep shore of an island near Pacific Harbour Seals. The Bald Eagle’s nest with 2 chicks had a parent eagle keeping watch. And we even got a chance to see a young human in action, as she got a chance to captain the Lukwa!
