With far less wind blowing than yesterday it was a very interesting day of viewing the northern resident orcas. It was out in the Queen Charlotte Strait that we caught up with a small group of orcas, they were identified as the I35’s, a subpod of the I31 Matriline. Most of our viewing time was spent with I67 who was foraging intensely and lunge diving. Some G-Clan vocals were heard via the hydrophone when we first caught up with the pod. They were headed west and we left them at Lizard Point. On the afternoon tour, it was surprising to find the A30’s foraging at Beaver Cove shortly after departing from Alder Bay. Even though rain was falling gently, the sightings of the 9 orcas and the sounds of their A-Clan vocalizations as they foraged were superb! Passengers enjoyed some wonderful viewing, especially of A38 and A30 as they passed nearby the boat as it sat idle and drifting; foraging and traveling behaviour was observed when the pod made their turn back to the east and we left them at Blinkhorn. Other sightings today were: Several Stellar Sea Lions swimming and interacting together in playfulness, Harbor Seals, Rhinoceros Auklets, Red-necked Phalaropes, Pigeon Guillemots, Black Turnstones, Bald Eagles and an Eaglet in its nest, California Gulls and three flocks of unidentified ducks flying SE were also seen.
