California Transient Orca Around
Sightings of California Transient Orca from the Victoria area is the only report over the last few days since the last update. We have seen California Transients by Powell River as they cruised up Georgia Strait last year. They made their way to the top of Vancouver Island and farther North. These are Transient “Bigg's” Killer Whales that are most often seen in California, hence the name. Keep a lookout, it wouldn't be a surprise to see them along the Sunshine Coast.

Transient Orca – Bigg's Killer Whales
Transient T18s and California transient Ca 172 were sighted near Victoria BC Canada. I ran into California female Ca 172 in 2011 alongside other Southern transients.
