June 12th - T124C and T124A2's in English Bay
Today we made the journey across the Strait of Georgia to visit Cooper (T124C), Elkugu (T124A2), and Agafia (T124A2A) in English Bay. The cool air of the Strait was a refreshing change from the muggy air of Nanaimo. Our little port city broke temperature records today, having a high of 32C (89F). The previous high was 30C (86F).
While in the harbour we watched the whales hunt their lunch. There were many deep dives as the whales chased their prey (this time a harbour seal). Their perseverance paid off, as shown to us by Cooper (T124C) performing tail slaps and pectoral slaps after the successful hunt.
Transient orcas mainly feed on harbour seals (about 80% of their diet), but are known to eat harbour porpoises, sea lions, or even other whales when given the opportunity.
