How beautiful was our day while having the sun shining brightly throughout! The Orcas were travelling back to the east in Johnstone Strait when we encountered them this morning; they were the A30s and we observed some foraging and socializing behaviour that included tail slaps, splashing and spy-hopping.
The sky and sea were very blue today and even at a distance we could easily see three Humpback Whales in the area, Domino and Ridge we identified. It was a glorious fall day that was exhilarating and beautiful in every way!
