Monday July 10, 2018 – M.V. Lukwa
Today’s Sightings: Humpback Whale (Argonaut, Unidentified), Fish-eating Killer Whales (A23 Matriline), Pacific Harbour Seals, Dall’s Porpoises, Pacific White-Sided Dolphins, Steller Sea Lions, Bald Eagles, Rhinoceros Auklets, Common Murres, Northern Phalaropes, Black Turnstones and Pigeon Guillemots.
Today we were lucky enough to see the A23 matriline of Fish-eating Orcas! They were surrounded by very active Pacific White-sided Dolphins and Dall’s porpoise. Earlier we saw a Steller’s Sea Lion, that looked as if he may have been in a fight, resting on a rock. We also had great sightings of Humpback Whales on both of our trips!
