We enjoyed a gorgeous afternoon with sparkling blue waters, blue sky, a calm sea and the snow capped Coast Range Mountains on mainland BC provided a beautiful backdrop for viewing humpback whales. There were four of them that we sighted (others were also in the area).  They were spread out in Blackfish Sound moving around the area, some making wide circles. One humpback whale provided some exciting viewing while swimming close as we sat drifting with our engine off. It would pass by and then circle around and swim past again.  The bright orange discolouration of its faeces in the water indicated to us that it was likely feeding on krill. We also observed: dall’s porpoises, harbour seals, bald eagles and rhinoceros auklets.
