June 7th - T137s and T65Bs in the Strait
June 7th the left the docks and sailed over smooth waters to the middle of the Strait of Georgia where the T137s and T65Bs were travelling together.
Its hard not to be in awe of the T137s when you see them, partially because of Jack, T137A, who is a large 17 year old male who has a very distinct dorsal fin! As you can see from the picture below, his dorsal is not only massive but also has two large chunks missing from it.
Other members of the pod have distinct dorsals as well, including his mother, T137 (Loon), who has a big nick out of her dorsal, about halfway up. His other sibling, T137D (Wright) has a nick closer to the top of his dorsal than his mother.
T65B is also very recognizable, as her name “Chunk” suggests. She has a large chunk missing from the very bottom of her dorsal.
We got plenty of photos of these amazing animals taken by our Marine naturalist Val Watson. Check them out below and see if you can find Jack, Loon, Wright, and Chunk in the photos.
