The orcas were reported as being to the far east in Johnstone Strait in the early morning, they were resting near Port Neville and began traveling to the west at a rapid and steady pace. It was on the afternoon tour that we encountered them just west of the Boat Bay Light on the Cracroft Island shore, the A8’s and the A24’s, other pods were further behind in the Robson Bight Ecological Reserve, foraging and heading west as well. Some wonderful viewing was observed and A-Clan calls were heard via the hydrophone. It was a spectacular and beautiful afternoon to be out on the water. Other sightings today were: Stellar Sea Lions, Dall’s Porpoises, Harbor Seals, Rhinoceros Auklets, Red-necked Phalaropes, Bald Eagles and an Eaglet in a nest, Glaucous-winged and California Gulls.
