May 19th was a very exciting day on the water! We headed south to find the T65B’s, T75B’s, T75C’s and T124C and were treated to lots of surface activity from the animals. We found a ton of other wildlife along the way as well.Read More
Our captain James found whales for us just off Gabriola island at Thrasher rock! We departed from our Nanaimo dock and headed south to find the T86A family, including the 31 year old matriarch “Eider”, and her two offspring 18 year old “Nahanni” and 8 year old “Tyndall”.
After watching the T86A group explore the underwater reefs, we made our way to Entrance island and were lucky enough to witness hundreds of the largest sea lion on earth, the Stellers!Read More
We had an exciting encounter with the T49A family, less than 30 minutes from Nanaimo! Since orcas don’t follow a daily schedule, we never know what kinds of behaviours we are going to witness out there. We were thrilled to watch this family show us some variety including tail slaps, syphops (when a whale surfaces vertically), and even some breaches!Read More
We didn’t have to travel far to catch up with transient orca “Cooper”, aka T124C! We cruised south from Nanaimo and found this lone male less than an hour away.Read More
May 15th was a lucky day to be on the water in what could only be described as WHALE SOUP out there!
Both Cascadia and Keta left the dock at noon and headed south towards some reports of humpback whales, our first humpback sighting of 2019! We were also lucky enough to find orcas as well! Our first double whale species day of the season!Read More
On the may 12th we travelled north to Thormanby Island where we found T87, the T90’s and the T124A’s travelling together.Read More
Today was a beautifully calm day on the waters off of Nanaimo. We started the day off with reports of Killer Whales at Snake Island, just at the entrance to the Strait of Georgia off of Nanaimo. One of our open vessels, Cascadia, left the dock to search around the island in hopes of finding the orcas, and not too long after we heard they had travelled south towards Ladysmith!Read More
We travelled down to Boundary Pass to watch the T49As with many other amazing sights along the way.Read More
