10 am The 8 to 10 Transient Orca were slowly working their way between Powell River and Texada Island - still on a slow roll Southward. So, headed out with neighbour Steve G. to locate them. They did a number of long dives and continued their slow travel Southward in a zig zag pattern. We stayed with them until we were almost across from Smuggler Cove, just above Secret Cove - a long way down from Powell River, and even longer for Jen from Campbell River Whale Watching who arrived on scene with a tour around 2:30 pm. Jen left them around 3:45 pm spread out and still working their way towards the Southern end of Texada.

On getting back into the harbour in Powell River, a local who had been out fishing told me he had seen a couple of Porpoises around 2 pm that looked black, so the assumption is Dalls Porpoises, by Grant's Reef on the South end of Savary Island. Susan MacKay
9 am 6 Pacific White Sided Dolphins were in the Yuculta Rapids area by Jimmy Judd Island.
