We headed out this morning with rain falling gently but soon the rain was behind us and a beautiful rainbow arched across Johnstone Strait directly behind us as we headed east and into the sunshine with some 100++ Pacific White-sided Dolphins who were feeding and travelling as we headed east. It was fantastic viewing seeing the dolphins so spread out and immensely enjoyed by all, especially those who had never seen dolphins in the wild before. The A30’s had been reported entering into Blackney Passage and Blackfish Sound when we sighted orcas on the Vancouver Island shore heading east, as we watched they began crossing Johnstone Strait making their way towards Blackney Passage as well. We identified them as the A8’s but A28 was not among them. 30+ Stellar Sea Lions were sighted hauled out and swimming in the water on our way back. On the afternoon tour we headed towards the Robson Bight Ecological Reserve where orcas had been reported entering the Reserve from the east. A Humpback Whale was sighted en route to the orcas as were Dalls Porpoises riding at the bow of the boat and more Stellar Sea Lions who were swimming. We sighted orcas near the Pig Ranch on West Cracroft Island, some of the A24’s including A73, more orcas were foraging in the Robson Bight Reserve and more were headed to the west along the Vancouver Island shoreline. The orcas were travelling and foraging, some breaching activity was also observed. The rest of the A24’s were sighted further to the east as we headed home. Other species also seen today were: Dall’s Porpoises, hauled out Harbour Seals, Bald Eagles, Rhinoceros Auklets, Common Murres, Red-necked Phalaropes, Pigeon Guillemots, Surf Scoters, Belted Kingfishers and California Gulls.
