September 11 – September 17

What a wonderful week of (mostly) calm winds and awesome adventures in the Salish Sea! We had killer whale sightings on 7 of our 8 tours this week, along with some wonderful humpback whale encounters. 

We had visits from the T075B, T018, T137, T037A, T060, and T123 families of killer whales this week. Although it is very hard to pick just one, perhaps the most memorable encounter of the week was with the T07B and T018 families of orca whales. We caught up with these orcas just east of Victoria, where we watched them socialize in the kelp beds for over an hour. It was amazing to see these whales not really in a hurry to go anywhere, exhibiting lots of playful behaviors.  

We had an incredible trip with humpback whales on Sunday morning’s tour when we found ourselves way out west at Race Rocks. There were at least 10 humpback whales in the area, probably more. Too many to count accurately!  

With just over a month left in our whale watching season, we are soaking in this (mostly) amazing fall weather, we hope to see you for a tour soon!
