July 25th



It was hot and sunny out in Blackfish Sound this morning, not a breath of wind and the water as smooth as glass - perfect condition for spotting humpbacks. It was not long before we found Houdini (a local humpback in this area) and her calf lunge feeding near some remote islands. It was a awesome sight! We also caught a glimpse of the lone resident sea otter swimming on his back and rolling in the bull kelp amongst an onlooking audience of harbour seals and bald eagles, before he swished up his tail and dived out of sight. The afternoon trip was full of humpbacks, it seemed that wherever we went there they were in front of us, showing off their beautiful tail flukes and exhaling towering blows. Even the Steller sea lions popped-up on numerous occasions, spying on us from amongst the kelp forests.
