August 12th


This afternoon we ventured down Johnstone Strait and met up with two groups of resident orcas, the A24's and A11's. We could view orca blow as far as the eye could see, spread out across the strait foraging on both sides around us. We switched off the engine, hoisted the sail and dropped the hydrophone into the water enabling as to listened to the stunning vocals as the orcas searched for salmon. We then cruised through the islands looking at bald eagle nests and foraging sea lions where once out the other side of we caught up with 2 Humpback whales foraging in Blackfish Sound. We watched as mother and calf made spectacular dives, flaunting their beautiful tail flukes for all to see.
