Hi there,Tracked two killer whales heading south off Rathtrevor Beach this afternoon – between 3:15 and 4:30. Appeared to be a mom and baby as the little one still had some pink. They were very slow – perhaps feeding as they would stay in one area for a while, there wold be lots of splashing and commotion and then they would move on. At one point the adult appeared to be chasing something through the water as it was moving very fast. It was an amazing experience! ThanksJill
Sightings are very few...odd for this time of year. But between the rough weather on the west coast of Vancouver Island, there are some Grey Whales showing up for the Pacific Rim Grey Whale Festival in the Tofino – Ucluelet area; see reports below. There are also a few Greys showing up just South of Vancouver Island around Whidbey Island and Transient Bigg's Killer Whales also in the US San Juan Island area. No word on where those Pacific White Sided Dolphins got to. They may still be in the Sechelt - Jervis Inlet area. Keep your eyes open – there must be more whales, dolphins or porpoise out there.
Today was different, we were off Salmon Beach watching two, likely male, Grey's rolling in shallow water close to the shore. They were having a great time, not sure if they were eating much or just having fun. No herring here yet so not likely that they were eating that much.
