On August 31st a large group of transient orcas passed by Alert Bay at 6:30 p.m. they were well spread out and traveling to the west, some 10 + orcas we sighted but possibly as many as 15 orcas were reported by other locals watching and although a distance away, these photo's were taken from our balcony. It was a fabulous sighting, seeing so many orcas in front of Alert Bay.
