It was a day of breathtaking beauty, one of dramatic change where the dense fog of the morning evaporated into a day and afternoon of glorious sunshine. The pods seen today were the same as yesterday, all of the A5’s and the A30’s. It is reassuring to see that their travel to the far east (traveling great distances) in search of food has changed in recent days and they are spending more time in the western part of Johnstone Strait, foraging in the area from the Robson Bight Ecological Reserve up to Turn Point or further west to the Stephenson Islands and Beaver Cove, then turning back to the east. On our tours today they were observed to be foraging most of the time, in their family groups, well spread out across the strait. Some half breaches, resting, a spyhop and some playful interaction between siblings were also observed. Other sightings today: harbour seals, dall’s porpoises, rhinoceros auklets,, bald eagles and an eaglet in the nest, california gulls+++, belted kingfishers, a great blue heron and black oyster catchers.
