Orcas were in Johnstone Strait today, the A23’s who spent the day traveling in the vicinity of the Robson Bight Ecological Reserve and to the west in the vicinity of Cracroft Point and Blackney Passage. On our afternoon tour today we encountered the orcas near to the western boundary of the reserve, they had been stopping briefly to forage, turning back and forth, having crossed back over from Cracroft Point, there was some ‘milling’ observed and then they entered the Reserve going deep into the Bight to forage. Other sightings today included: Dall’s Porpoises, Harbour Seals, Rhinoceros Auklets, Red-necked Phalaropes, Bald Eagles, Mew and Herring Gulls.
