The fog cleared rapidly this morning and not long after our departure, orcas were sighted off the Bauza Islets, they were well spread out and foraging and were identified as being the A36 brothers and A12. A46 was the first orca we came upon at the Islets followed by A37. It was a while before we sighted A12, she was much further to the east and mid-strait, and as we watched she crossed over, making her way to Blinkhorn on the Vancouver Island shore where A38 was also sighted. When they made their turn they all angled back towards Cracroft Point and made their way slowly against the ebb current in that direction. Other species also seen were: Dall’s Porpoises (and two chasing fish), Harbour Seals, Bald Eagles and an Eaglet in the nest, Rhinoceros Aucklets, Red-Necked Phalaropes, Black Turnstones, Black Oystercatchers and Pigeon Guillemots.
