Friday, August 10, 2018 – M.V. Lukwa and M.V. Kuluta

Mystical Scenery in Johnstone Strait.

Today’s Sightings: Humpback Whales (Argonaut, Stitch, Black Pearl, Quartz, Freckles and unidentified), Northern Resident (fish-eating) Orcas (A34 matriline), Dall’s Porpoises, Pacific Harbour Seals, Steller Sea Lions, Northern River Otter, Bald Eagles, Rhinoceros Auklets, Common Murres, Belted Kingfishers, Northern Phalaropes, and Gulls.

This morning the Plumper Islands were covered in light fog leading many of our guests to comment on the mystical scenery. With Orcas, Humpback Whales, and many other animals we couldn’t have wished for a better day!

Spectacular Scenery (and a Killer Whale).
