July 28th - Orca near Saturna Island
In the morning we cruised down the coast to Saturna Island to find the T46’s. The trip was quite an adventure as we headed along Saturna Island’s West coast. We had to circle around the outside of the area as the pod entered the exclusion zone at the South tip of the island, but we were able to relocate them on the East side as they travelled across the Strait of Georgia! T46 (Wake) and the rest of her pod were speeding along through the waves; it was incredible to see! Orca can swim as fast as 25mph so they can cover a lot of ground in a very short amount of time!
During the afternoon we located T77C (Neftali) and T77D (Alcyon) in Active Pass. We spotted two keen-eyed eagles following closely behind the whale siblings as they travelled, dive bombing the water’s surface as they grabbed scraps from the whales’ hunt. There were many nervous bobs of seals along the coast of Mayne Island as the siblings went hunting up and down the coastline, searching for their next meal.
