What beautiful weather we are all enjoying on the North Island! Today was a gorgeous one, made even more so with the appearance of the A30s into Johnstone Strait, they having arrived into the area last evening where they joined with the A42s! The morning was a wonderful one and we all enjoyed seeing the two families, close together, travelling slowly west near Kaikash in Johnstone Strait. Their A-Clan vocalizations were beautiful to listen to!
Afterwards, we ventured into Weynton Passage where fog had settled for a while and there we saw a Humpback Whale and Steller Sea Lions frolicking in the kelp forests.
This afternoon, Bigg’s (Transient) Orcas went by Alert Bay, they were the T0137s. People enjoyed watching and taking their photographs from the shore!
