Fog and Whales

Sightings have been few and far between over the past bit, but finally, from out of the fog, there are a couple of reports. The drifting banks of thick fog has definitely made it difficult for any sightings along the Sunshine Coast. Fog banks were a bit lighter from Campbell River and up into Johnstone Strait.

Orca – Killer Whales

February 6:
I've just had a message from Charlotte and they said they have been incredibly lucky and seen cow, big bull and possibly yearling at West Thurlow by Hardwicke. They think there may have been one or 2 more.

Whales and Dolphins BC received a late report of 3+ Orca at the top end of Johnstone Strait around 1 pm. Later reports had these whales as Resident Orca.

Pacific White Sided Dolphins

February 5:
Around 3 pm with the hydrophone down and in between boat sounds, I picked up some Pacific White Sided Dolphin chatter. It was only due to the one big dolphin leap that I could even confirm that they were under the swarm of birds off the top of Texada Island and towards Rebecca Rocks. It was great to be out on the water; and no fog.
