Lots of Resident Orcas & Transients
What a day! In total Johnstone and Queen Charlotte strait's were home to well over 100 Orcas today. On our first trip we headed out into the mist and found B pod with another group of whales all socializing with each other and resting. There were many spyhops and lots of surface activity. 2 of the individuals in this group are amazing looking animals with their huge dorsal fins wavy, curled, and bent. This afternoon both MV Cetacea and SV Tuan witnessed large groups of G pod whales as well as the A36 pod and a group of Transient eco-type Orcas as well. Each group was engaged in a different behaviour so we all witnessed about as much possible in 1 tour. In addition to all the Orca activity we also viewed Harbor porpoises, Dall's porpoises and Harbor seals.
